Strathfield Council

The problem:

A council in the Inner West of Sydney needed a voice to foster community spirit and keep its citizens informed

The solution:

Big Splash Media created an integrated newspaper and website twice nominated in PANPA’s Newspaper of the Year awards.

We reported monthly for a paper which often ran to 32 pages, including live reporting of council meetings and special meetings. We created special covers for events, and helped get support and sponsorship for spring festivals and food festivals.

We created an annual food guide of 60 pages featuring local chefs and their recipes which proved very popular online and in print.

Finally, we spearheaded residents’ campaign to keep Strathfield Council independent during the State Government’s merger battle.
