Editorial Boundaries

our ethics

Wide Avenues is a for-profit storytelling and investigations agency. We maintain a strict boundary between our editorially independent work and paid content and practice full transparency about who has paid for it and on what basis. In our editorially independent work, we respect the highest standards in professional journalistic ethics. We believe a wide client base can help us avoid the influence of a single funder. That said, we do not engage in public relations, or seek to place advocacy in the mainstream media.
