Welcome to the Home of the Professional Society of Drone Journalists (PSDJ).
Established in 2011, PSJD is the first international organization dedicated to establishing the ethical, educational and technological framework for the emerging field of drone journalism. We develop small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS) for journalists, and explore best practices to deploy them for a variety of reporting needs, including investigative, disaster, weather, sports, and environmental journalism.
