Submit a story or an engagement idea.

Do you have an idea for a news story or blog post?

Perhaps you’d like to tell people about your project or event. Or celebrate a successful endeavour.

We’d love to help you tell your Essex 2020 story as we celebrate STEAM and innovation in Essex. You don’t need to be a confident writer – we will support you with editing and accessibility. With the popular Essex 2020 website, newsletter and great press relations your story may have the potential to reach across the county and beyond.

Ideally, your post should be 200-400 words long and contain some engaging images. Take a look at some other news stories for inspiration. We’ll need at least one image, to lead the article. This image should be high resolution and in a landscape orientation. Images for the body of the post can be any aspect ratio but if there’s more than one it’s useful if they’re the same size so they can easily fit together in a ‘gallery’.

If you are celebrating a successful event and you have photographed any participants you must gain their permission for images to be published.
