The Trireme-
Radio France & Easyjet

This month's Trireme Award for "the worst terms since I was chained to the oars" is shared between Radio France and Easyjet's website.

Easyjet would appear to be extending the company's budget "no frills" philosophy into payments for freelances - £42 for 400 words (£105 a thousand). Radio France, while they do pay some travel expenses for a four-minute "On The Spot" documentary, pay just €80 for a complete package (pitching all the way to editing), which represents at least a day-and-a-half's work.
