Welcome to the Freelance Fees Guide

NEW! Every section of the Guide is now just one click away from listings of NUJ freelances with the right skills, from the NUJ Freelance Directory. Look up the rate, find a freelance: sorted.

We are constantly revising the Guide rates: please send comments and submit rates that you have been paid in the past year. If you have not read the Guide for a while it is important that you read the introduction before going to the rates listings.
