Since 2000, more than 600 citizen journalists, artists and media activists have contributed their energy to this project. Winner of dozens of New York Community Media Alliance awards, The Independent is dedicated to empowering people to create a true alternative to the corporate press by encouraging people to produce their own media.

We accept submissions that look at news and culture through a global lens, exploring how systems of power — economic, political and social — affect the lives of ordinary people.|
