*Warning The ST Media Release Payment system is not yet operational due to Developers testing and linking payment gateways-We hope to have it working and fully functional shortly.
Sydney Times has launched a Media Release Publishing Service for our community on an admin fee basis.
Sydney Times is our city’s 21st century online newspaper and a leading source of breaking news, politics, sports, lifestyle, entertainment, and much more for Sydney, New South Wales, Australia and the world.
A vital function of the Sydney Times is to carry NSW Government news and press releases as well as news from Sydney City Council and many other businesses and Federal Government agencies. The Sydney Times carries press releases from a wide range of Sydney and other NSW stakeholders and government departments and authorities, and functions as an authoritative information platform for the Sydney community.
Sydney Times is conscious of its responsibility to provide a reliable platform for the publication of news and information to the community, however we need to cover the expenses involved in publication. For this reason, we have developed a Scale of Fees that will apply depending on the complexity and urgency of your posting.
We are NOT a free news posting site. Sydney or Australian community members or stakeholders who wish to share information on the Sydney Times digital platform can apply to have their publicity or media releases posted on an ADMIN FEE BASIS.
Government agencies and non-profits:
If you are part of the press office for a NSW State Department, or the City of Sydney Council, or the Commonwealth Government and its agencies, you may submit news announcements free of charge, provided they are sent from an official e-mail account, and in MS Word format (not PDF).
Media releases from cultural institutions:
You may submit news announcements free of charge, based on a queuing system and prioritized in order of importance by staff of Sydney Times, according to our internal policies and in compliance with our Mission Statement – to broadcast news of interest to the Sydney Times community of readers – who may consider this information or content to be of importance.
