The Freelance Photo-Journalist Writers Institute and FPJI are both Mustard Sprout Media LLC programs, however, none of them serves as a personal career counselor nor promises work as a result of enrolling in one of our course publications.

FPJI offers its members information on how to improve their writing, design, and photography. The knowledge provided to our members, in our opinion, is the best and most beneficial currently available to those with an interest in writing and graphic design. For the sole use of FPJI members, the information offered in FPJI programs. Any electronic or other kinds of copying or dissemination of information published by Mustard Sprout Media is strictly forbidden. The fact that FPJI is not a school and does not grant any degrees that are respected by companies should be made clear to members. Income outcomes may differ.

Press Credentials

Most Venues and Events will issue credentials for an event. Part of Our Program walks you through this process.

Law enforcement agencies typically grant press credentials for news coverage. These agencies set the requirements,
which differ depending on the department, for the granting of credentials. The privileges conferred by credentials from one department may not be accepted by another.

Typically, media outlets give out identification badges or other items with the words “Press” or “Media” on them.
They really just serve as proof that a journalist or photographer is who they claim to be. Press Credentials can
also be used to show that a journalist identifies themselves as a Journalist or Photographer.
We do not guarantee or warrant that any group, organization, or government body will accept our credentials.
Results may vary.
