We look for a diverse range of content that engages people across the full spectrum of a tabloid newspaper content e.g. News, Satire, Entertainment, Comment, Sport, etc. We are especially interested in content that gives voice to otherwise unheard individuals, groups or collectives and ideas or thoughts often neglected within the mainstream media.
