Intersection Journal is beyond thrilled to take its storytelling to the next level by expanding into Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota and South Dakota with the help of 5 incredible photographers (meet them here).
We have gained incredible momentum thanks to the support of OTA, the Innovate ND program and your excitement. Now that all of the pieces are in place to promote and develop these stories (through careful design, coding and SEO best practices), it’s time to focus on the most important (and most fun!) part of Intersection Journal – the stories!
In order to support our photographers for their incredible efforts, our upcoming Kickstarter campaign will go live this week. Intersection Journal needs to raise $29,000 to compensate our photographers for the creation of 12 photo stories due to be published in the months of May, June and July. I personally will not be receiving any of this money, every last dollar will be passed through to the photographers and writers.
The purpose of this three-month period is to prove that these incredible stories deserve to be told and that we can make a sustainable business from long-form photojournalism. The momentum that we create over the months of May, June and July will give us the start that we need to raise sponsorship dollars for the next wave of stories. The business of journalism is based on readership, and readership comes through compelling content.
Your support will ensure that the content is created and that we can build Intersection Journal into a business that champions our communities in North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana and Wyoming, as well as the the content creators that bring these stories to life.
Together we can make this vision a reality. Thank you for joining us in our effort to showcase our region’s resilience for the world to see. We won’t let you down and can’t wait to get rolling.
