We are Big Splash Media

We are a FACTUAL media company. Because there is no content more compelling than true stories about real life people and their work and play.

You’ll be surprised at what we have on offer – and the value we deliver. We also have a global network of editors and journalists in magazine, online and radio business journalists, travel and fashion writers.

Travel and finance are our specialties.  But we’ve covered fashion, sport, business, food and local government.

We’ve created and launched websites, newsletters, national and local newspapers and magazines.

All this – and we’re nice people to do business with!
