Colorist Salary Survey 2019 [international]
Thank you for helping us gathering information about our own profession and professional situation of working colorists.
The goal for this survey is to collect anonymous information about salaries (daily rates and wages) and field of work. In order to simplify the comparability we will ask you to calculate a daily rate, even if you usually charge by the hour or per project. Please be aware of that, when filling in the appropriate fields.
The results will be published (on the grade.community website and shared with the Colorist Society International) and hopefully used by all of us to evaluate our current situation including equal pay among gender and experience levels and guide starting colorists in questions about rates and wages.
We started this questionnaire within Berlin, meaning colorists mainly working in Berlin. Based on this, we updated some of the questions and now opened it world-wide.
Please make sure to submit just one response per person!
Please share this questionnaire with colleagues and fellows from our industry.
Questions marked with a red asterisk are mandatory!
