Princes Quay, Hull

HULL IS THIS is a positive journalism project sharing news of what’s going well in Hull, and investigating solutions to our city’s other issues.

HULL IS THIS has become a popular source for news about Hull, supported by a large number of followers on social media.

We empower businesses and organisations, communities and individuals, to make Hull an even better place for us to live, work and visit.


We work alongside some of the city’s finest professional writers, journalists and digital media producers to create constructive, solutions-focused, positive content – news with a positive purpose.

The editor also receives press releases from agencies, statutory authorities, charities and other organisations.

Additionally, the editor considers content from students and those pursuing a career in journalism. It’s great to give new writers and media producers a step up.

All submitted content is judged against the key editorial question: ‘Is this story adding to, or in some way illustrating, the continuing development of the city of Hull, its communities, and its enterprises?’

Corporate sponsorship

The project also welcomes corporate sponsorship, especially from enterprises and organisations that share the values in our mission statement. For more information, please email editor @ hullisthis.com

Many thanks,

Rich Sutherland
