Service orientated trade association.
• Independent and non-aligned.

The European Chamber of Journalists (ECJ) was founded in 2006 by experienced press professionals, journalists and experts in the field. Industry experts appreciate the ECJ as a professional trade association that mainly is represented by full & part time journalists, experts in the communication sector and media representatives.  This includes editors, (freelance) press photographers and feature journalists, authors, publishers, directors, camera people, spokesmen, film critics and radio reporters.
