An insight into the Visual, Audio, Creative Content Professionals Association (Singapore), and upcoming engagement sessions to hear from you.
Visual, Audio, Creative Content Professionals Association (Singapore)
Introduction The Visual, Audio, Creative Content Professionals Association (Singapore) (VICPA) was formed to represent visual, audio, and creative content professionals, with a focus on shaping trade practices and enhancing the professional work prospects of its members. VICPA will continue to establish and deepen collaborations with stakeholders in the creative media and enterprise sectors to progressively strengthen industry practices, including helping buyers understand how creative professionals charge as well as their value of service. Why Join VICPA
NTUC recognises that many professionals in these sectors find that a lack of industry benchmarks or standards has contributed to an undervaluation of services. This hinders the progression of the industry and if perpetuated, may see an eventual outflow of professionals from the scene. VICPA's top priority is therefore to develop a code of ethics to guide industry practices as well as develop a network of support and resources to enable you to advance your professionalism so that you can remain relevant in the changing landscape and be equipped to expand business opportunities.
VICPA's Professional 'Code of Ethics'
The Professional Code of Ethics is intended to shape as well as guide the conduct of trade practices, and influence service buyers in how they value and procure your services. This would reinforce VICPA’s on-going efforts to address the evergreen concerns of professionals on the undervaluation of services.
Through rounds of focus groups, we have crafted a first draft. We invite you to build on this draft and co-create the Professional Code of Ethics with us from now till 30 June 2021.

A log of contributed views would be posted here regularly.
