Pitch to IJNet


Pitch to IJNet

IJNet | February 08, 2016

Do you know of a journalism tool, app or resource that we haven’t covered? A media innovator who has a fascinating story to tell? Or do you simply want to discuss a current media trend taking place in your country?

If so, we want to hear from you.

IJNet is now accepting pitches from readers. In doing so, we hope to build a network of global, diverse contributors whose work can help as many journalists as possible. You can submit a story from anywhere in the world, and all freelance submissions are paid. 

Submit your story pitch below.

If we’re interested in your idea, we will get back to you within one week. If your story is time-sensitive, please indicate that in your pitch.

Currently, we’re only accepting pitches in English, but we plan to accept pitches in other languages in the near future.

We look forward to reading your ideas!
