Want to reach our readers with innovative and targeted commercial campaigns? We offer sponsored articles, display advertising and social media opportunities across our network to London institutions, businesses, event organisers and brands wishing to spread their message to Londoners.
Please note that advertorial and editorial are handled separately on Londonist. If you are interested in editorial inclusion, please email the details over to email@example.com for consideration.
N.B. Agencies please approach w00t! Media who represent us exclusively.
When we carry advertising content in our editorial stream it is labelled as ‘sponsored by’, or ‘in partnership with’, has author name ‘sponsor’, and any associated Tweets or Facebook posts carry the label ‘(sponsor)’. After an initial trial period, in which we tried various approaches, we now avoid blatant SEO-style advertising and material from ‘content farms’ and work with advertisers to make sponsored content of genuine interest to a London audience. We do not accept guest posts.
Competitions, giveaways and reader offers on Londonist are always commercially arranged and marked ‘sponsored’ as highlighted above. Normally, we need to take an email address in order to notify winners. We will never share contact details with third parties (such as the company behind the competition) without opt-in permission. Nor will we store or use your details ourselves, other than to notify winners. If you’re interested in placing a competition on Londonist please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Londonist staff and contributors are not permitted to enter competitions on the site.
We forge media partnerships with carefully selected London organisations whose great London stories, events or exhibitions are of genuine interest to Londonist and its readers. These partnerships work on a co-promotional basis and can include project delivery costs. In most cases we dedicate an agreed amount of time and editorial space to each partnership, allowing us to create original content and in-depth articles around the subject.
We have delivered successful media partnerships with Museum of London, Barbican, Thames Festival, South Bank London and others. Interested in talking to us about a media partnership? Email email@example.com
