DRAFT - FOR DISCUSSION PURPOSES ONLY

Media Sponsorship is a regular part of the FOSS4G conference event and a similar model is applied to OSGeo Media Sponsors. In exchange for valuable advertising space or opportunities to write articles, OSGeo recognizes a company as an official Media Sponsor. A written agreement laying out the following provisions is reviewed and renewed on an annual basis.

  1. Potential Media Sponsors are companies that focus on media outreach - magazines, online industry news sites, publishers, etc.
  2. Vendor-specific marketing outreach companies are not a good fit for this program, e.g. the aim is to partner with media companies that are sympathetic with OSGeo's mission.
  3. A commitment of $X,000 (5,000?) worth of corporate resources in the form of:
    1. Advertising space in printed form or online
    2. Featured space for writing articles around OSGeo topics
    3. Feature OSGeo Press Releases and News Items
    4. Placement of OSGeo logo as a partner on related website or documents
    5. What else?

OSGeo Provides

  1. Media sponsors are recognized along with main Foundation Sponsorship partners on osgeo.org/sponsors and at events around the world.
  2. OSGeo works with the sponsors, and the OSGeo community, to use the available resources provided through this program.
