Frequently Asked Questions
Why Amplify Utah?
Utah is growing and so are the diversity of experiences, backgrounds and viewpoints. We believe we can learn from each other's stories—but only if those stories have a platform.
How can others benefit from Amplify Utah's concept?
We plan to develop a "playbook" that helps other communities implement the "amplify" concept of elevating more diverse voices in journalism. More info on this to come, but please sign up for our email list and get in touch if you'd like to hear from us about this.
What are Amplify Utah's long-term goals?
In addition to creating a place where high-quality student work can be presented, we encourage media literacy through representative storytelling and a better, more realistic representation of the communities in which we live. This will be a secondary phase as we get going.
What is an Amplify Utah media partner?
As a start-up, we are excited to partner with the Salt Lake Tribune and Salt Lake Community College to discover and amplify stories from within and across our community. We hope to create additional partnerships with Utah media entities, including broadcast, legacy newspapers and digital.
