New(s) Ideas

CALL FOR IDEAS

Calling all media startups and businesses with solutions for news media!

Get your product or service in front of thousands of news organizations looking for new ways to grow revenue, drive subscriptions, engage their audiences and streamline production.

ABOUT THE CONTEST

The News Media Alliance represents over 2,000 news media organizations in the US and Europe who are producers of original news content, including the largest major national newspapers and international outlets, smaller local dailies and weeklies, and digital-first and digital-only publications.

If this sounds like an audience you want to reach with your product or service, then send us your idea and you could be featured on our website and social media channels, viewed regularly by thousands of news media executives, and included in our weekly newsletter, newsXchange, which has a circulation of over 14,000 members of the news media industry!

The point is to find the best New(s) Ideas for our members, and to give you what could be the biggest break in your company’s history – the opportunity to get your company and product or service in front of big-name publishers.

One idea per month will be selected to be featured. In December, our members will vote on the best New(s) Idea from the monthly winners featured throughout year. The winner who receives the most votes will be awarded the opportunity to present their solution on an exclusive webinar for Alliance members, a dedicated eblast to the Alliance membership of over 10,000 individuals, and complimentary Associate membership in the Alliance for 2019.

HOW TO ENTER

To enter, complete the form below (or if you’d prefer, click here) and provide a link to your best presentation of your idea – the more visual and interactive your presentation is, the better your chances of being featured. We want videos, interactive slide presentations, compelling product pitches in the vein of TEDx, product demos, etc.

If you don’t have anything fancy to share, but you have a really great idea that will knock news media companies’ socks off, that’s OK. You can just send us a short video of you talking about it shot on your phone, or a really excellent blog post.
