AAP’s news reaches more than 5 million radio listeners every week and millions of readers every day.

Help us maintain the supply of independent news to hundreds of outlets. For the last 85 years AAP has delivered the news to Australia. Now we need Australia to deliver for us.

AAP is an essential piece of Australia’s democratic infrastructure. We collect the news – text and photography – from all around the country and provide it to newspapers, television, radio and websites.

Earlier this year NewsCorp and Nine announced their intention to shut down AAP, but in June a group of philanthropists and impact investors stepped in to keep it alive. AAP is now operated as a not for profit company dedicated to delivering fast, fact-based journalism to keep the Australian media market diverse.

But for AAP to continue and thrive it needs ongoing customer revenue, it needs a fair share of the generous support the Commonwealth Government has offered other media companies, and, right now, it needs the help of thousands of Australians as well.

Australia’s best known regional newspapers rely heavily on AAP for content, and would be unrecognisable without it.

Whole pages of content in some regional newspapers are sourced from AAP, and AAP is often the sole provider of their world news. AAP images regularly appear on the front pages of Australia’s biggest newspapers.

Please keep Australian media diverse by helping to ensure the future of AAP – independent, trusted, accurate and consistent.
