OtherWorld is piloting something different for the news industry: the ability to reach new audiences on-the-go via their mobile phones. This also calls for a departure from the traditional news agenda. When submitting a story please consider:
📍Hyper-local. We're particularly keen on timely or timeless news that is tied to one of our beacon locations.
👀 Visual stimulation. It helps us enormously if your submission includes a beautiful image. Please try to keep images under 100kb as people cherish their mobile data.
🗞️ Areas of interest. We're open to all ideas for stories. We aim to be more useful, interesting and relevant than what already exists. So that means no clickbait or filler content.
📣 Sources. We're open to submissions from diverse perspectives and organisations of all shapes and sizes. They will be united by having something interesting to say.
✍️ Voice. Everybody hates newspeak. Even some journalists. Make sure any submitted stories are personable and knowledgeable, not assuming and pretentious.
👏 Thank you. Whilst we can't promise to post every story you submit we are grateful for your suggestions. Keep them coming!
