The Finnish Media Federation (Finnmedia) is an advocacy organisation for private companies in the media and printing industries. We focus our advocacy on industrial policy and labour market policies. We also promote new growth in the media industry.
Our member companies promote freedom of speech, Finnish culture and democracy by producing quality Finnish media products and services across all channels.
Our core task is to ensure that private media companies have a level playing field and a fair starting point for competition with international giants and other Finnish actors. The most important way for us to achieve our goal is to influence the regulation of the industry and the signing of competitive terms of employment.
The Finnish Media Federation and our member associations – the Finnish Periodical Publishers’ Association, the Federation of the Printing Industry in Finland, The Finnish Newspapers Association, the Finnish Book Publishers Association and RadioMedia – include a total of nearly 700 member companies. The industry employs about 22,000 people. The total turnover of the industry is 4.4 billion euros.
