The Australian Press Council (APC) welcomes Man of Many Pty Ltd and Mandean Media Network as publisher members.
These new members are in addition to the three publishers the APC announced earlier this year.
- Man of Many Pty Ltd is an Australian men’s lifestyle website publishing news and features relating to consumer products, technology, entertainment, and social equity initiatives. The website has 685,000 unique visitors per month in Australia, and four million visitors globally.
- Mandaean Media Network is a community-based media production association producing news for the Mandaean religious community of western Sydney. Mandaean Media Network’s mission is to advance the process of generating community news and current affairs and to inform and educate the Mandaean community.
“It is gratifying that Australia’s small publishers are seeking membership of the Australian Press Council,” said Neville Stevens, AO, APC Chair. “It signifies the value they place on maintaining high editorial standards and protecting press freedom.”
The Australian Press Council aims to promote freedom of speech through responsible and independent print and digital media, and adherence to high journalistic and editorial standards. Press Council members include the majority of Australia’s major newspaper, magazine, and online publishers.
