Insurance for Freelance Journalists – Reporters Without Borders
‘Mission Insurance Agreement for Freelance Reporters and Journalists Reporters Without Borders is offering freelance reporters the opportunity to take out an insurance policy through them. Too often, reporters are assigned to cover conflicts – in increasing number – without insurance. Exorbitant costs and a lack of information are the main reasons. Reporters Without Borders signed an agreement with Escapade Insurances to offer competitively-priced coverage to freelance reporters’.
Membership with Reporters Without Borders is mandatory to purchase insurance through the organization. This insurance is valid for journalists of any nationality traveling outside their country of habitual residence. To purchase insurance with Reporters Without Borders and/or request a quote, write to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com

But, this visual language is dying. The traditional outlets are collapsing. In the midst of this upheaval, we must invent a new language. Condition ONE combines the power of the still image and storytelling, the emotional engagement of tactile experiences, and the compelling nature of being an active participant in an effort to pioneer a new language that is so immersive, that it will shake viewers out of their numbness to traditional media and provide them a powerful emotional experience. Instead of opening a window to glimpse another world, we are attempting to bring the viewer into that world.

I have been trying to track down people I had photographed during East Timor’s fight for independence in 1999. The project’s aim is to find the survivors and continue to tell their stories, a task made even more difficult by the fact I had made the decision not to record names at that time, not wanting my notes to fall into the wrong hands and place people at risk. It was a dangerous time for everyone. The other day, two close friends, UNMIT photographers Martine Perret and Dino Soares, graciously managed to track down a family I had photographed in Dili back then. The photograph shows the family having just returned to the burnt out remains of their home. It was tense, as rampaging Militia, alongside Indonesian soldiers, were continuing to torch nearby buildings. I was immediately struck by that look of concern on the father’s face. I took a photograph and moved on. On March 22nd, 2011, it was an absolute pleasure to be formally introduced to Marsal Guterres and his family, wife Tereza Da Silva Almeida Dos Santos, daughter Martina Margarida Guterres, 13 years old, and son, Jacinto Guterres Da Silva, 11.

‘The purpose of this project is to honor these fallen – not simply as soldiers, marines, airmen and seamen, but as sons, daughters, sisters and brothers – and to remind us that before they fought, they lived, and they slept, just like us, at home’ – Ashley Gilbertson

It was moving to watch the affection between Pham Minh Trieu and his daughter, Pham Thi Ngoc Minh. This quietly spoken man had been in the Army from 1950 – 1975 and was a medic during the War. He remembers hiding in underground tunnels during US Air Force bombing raids. He was based in Bà Rịa, Vũng Tàu Province, when dioxin was dropped on the area, and has strong memories of leaves falling off plants, trees dying and eating fruit from dioxin-affected regrowth. Returning to Ben Tre Provence he married and had a daughter. He blames her defects on dioxin poisoning, a direct result of his exposure during the War.
I draw inspiration from my colleagues, and when they do something powerful, I think it is important to spread the word.
