Survey of freelancers Creative Industries Federation

Help make sure the voice of freelance illustrators is heard. The Creative Industries Federation is running a survey of freelancers, saying, “self-employed creatives – freelancers, consultants, entrepreneurs, sole-traders – make a crucial contribution to the creative economy but are misunderstood and overlooked in policy-making.

This survey is intended to gather information about these individuals to better inform policy-makers of their needs and the way they contribute to the economy.”

It’s a basic income and attitude survey and can be found here.

Survey 1 – questions for freelancers and the self-employed – mapping the creative freelance workforce

A few notes for illustrators completing the survey:

Q4. If you are not a member of the Creative Industries Federation, please state the name of the Federation member who sent you this survey.

AOI is not a member of the Federation but our fellow association the Society of Authors are, and they have said we can put their name here.

Q5. How do you describe yourself – e.g. consultant, freelance photographer, writer, director, producer, designer?

This should be Illustrator or Freelance Illustrator

Q6. Which creative sector(s) do you work in? Please indicate your primary sector(s).

You should add ‘Illustration’ as your creative sector to the ‘Other (please specify)’ box for this question.

Thank you for taking part.
