About Press Klub

We have worked 10 years on this project: we held meetings with our colleagues and community members abroad, put the idea up for discussion many times, tested it, changed what failed the tests, created a database, periodically renewed it; for life of a journalist is very dynamic and always full of novelties.

A Platform for Azerbaijani Journalists

“Baku Press Klub” international network is the result of our efforts and research. Our main purpose is to create a platform for Azerbaijanis working in the media industry abroad and foreign journalists with professional interests in Azerbaijan to gather. Of course, website of the virtual club cannot offer face-to-face conversation over a cup of tea. However, it creates every opportunity for its users to make contact over long distances, expand their social circles and knowledge, exchange thoughts and experiences with colleagues. Here everyone will find the help they need: one of the main functions of this club is to provide professional help to media workers.
