The Media Fund now supports 45 media partners, including legacy independent media organisation, such as The New Internationalist and Open Democracy.
The Media Fund is a member-led cooperative that supports independent media organisation through crowd-powered funding. We also support and represent the independent media as a sector through advocacy and events, such as the Independent Media Awards, which will launch in December 2018.
The Media Fund Chairman, Daniel Lewis said:
“Independent media organisations are a growing force in UK media offering quality, public interest journalism that the mainstream increasingly struggles to provide.
“Today’s announcement shows the sector is seeing healthy expansion and increasingly able to support more organisation, bringing quality news and analysis to people at a time when the reliability of both traditional print media and social media are being questioned.”
