The Fourth Estate Alliance is a non-profit organisation dedicated to helping independent, professional journalists succeed in an increasingly difficult environment by producing strong, ethical and accurate news that best serves publishers and builds global respect for the industry.
We believe the world benefits greatly from a strong news media and this can be aided by empowering independent journalists and small news agencies.
The Fourth Estate Alliance was launched in 2018 with the mission of building a global network of independent freelance journalists working for independent news media organisations.
Our key project brings independent freelancers into a virtual newsroom environment that mixes experienced professionals with gifted newcomers working together in small, specialised agencies to provide high-quality news to media partners. In this virtual newsroom, all the checks and balances found in bricks and mortar newsrooms are available to freelancers and agencies as well as productivity tools to aid accounting and invoicing.
