About Us – mobile
CONTX Media is an Australian based independent news media company that reports on all things culturally significant, through the lens of innovation. We are here to help you answer one question… How will new innovative ideas and trends impact us culturally?
In an age where politically and ideologically biased news reporting has become the status quo, we think of ourselves as the only news alternative that makes sense when all you want is a refreshing perspective on cool ideas and interesting stories.
Especially those stories that are likely to be swept under the rug by the mainstream.
From science, space exploration, business innovation and big tech through to drugs, popular culture and medical discoveries, we have got you covered! Our niche is to steer clear of all things political, sticking solely to the facts.
So, how do we decide what to report on? We ask all of our journalists and writers to abide by our simple INNOVATE framework when attempting to find the next interesting story to publish, tailored just for you!
Our INNOVATE framework consists of just seven simple questions:
I - is the story ‘INNOVATIVE’?
N - is the story ‘NEW’?
N - is the story ‘NUANCED’?
O - is the story ‘ORIGINAL’?
V - is the story ‘VIVACIOUS’?
A - is the story ‘APPLICABLE’?
T - is the story ‘TRANSPARENT’?
E - is the story ‘EQUITABLE’?
If we fail to answer the majority of these questions with a YES, then the story is unlikely to be covered by us.
But if we do answer YES to the majority of the questions that make's up our INNOVATE framework, CONTX will be all over it!
