EUPA in Comparison

Anyone with a steady job in journalism, whether full time or part time, is naturally drawn to a membership in a journalistic or press association, which allows journalists to pursue their work in an unhampered and professional way. The decision makes sense considering the benefits, which include receiving a press pass; however, selecting the right press association is not always an easy task. Unlike many other associations, EUPA is one of the few press and news agencies that is open to media professionals, photographers, reporters, journalists and PR representatives who pursue their journalistic work on a part-time basis.

Immediately following completion of your registration, we will send you confirmation of your membership. This will provide you with your EUPA member ID as well as information on how to pay your membership fee. Once we have received your payment, we will send all your other press credentials via postal mail.

Summary: Benefits and press pass

Expensive annual fees and missing benefits compared to full-time journalists are the main reasons why journalists who work part time frequently decide against a membership in a press association. This creates a disadvantage for freelance journalists, who have to practice their profession under adverse conditions. In contrast, EUPA only charges $48 per year for its services and the right to receive a press pass.
