After three years, we now represent more than 70.000 newsagents in 80 countries.
“In a period of time when the power of the media is rapidly changing, and propaganda and alternative facts are spreading, we want to create a more authentic and democratic media image inspired by the people’s perspective.” Cecilia Valsted
We are an independent digital distribution platform that brings the content creator and the media together. Get discovered by the leading media outlets around the world and be assigned to cover breaking stories.
Since the beginning, we have experienced a massive interest from the media outlets that we work with, concerning news from the U.S. election, which is one of the most significant and influential events in the world. Our platform is ready, so we can jump into the U.S. election now, before it picks up. In this process, we need people on the ground, and this is where you come into the picture.
We want to cover all major cities and capitals, from as many angles as possible. And to do this, we need a local correspondent to catch the assignments that pops up from our European media partners.
