Editorial Standards

The Local Project is the fastest growing design platform in the Asia-Pacific region. As a 100 per cent independently owned and run media company, we are committed to reporting on architecture and design in a way that is clear, accurate and balanced.

Our work adheres to Australian Press Council standards:

Accuracy and clarity

  1. Ensure that factual material in news reports and elsewhere is accurate and not misleading.
  2. Provide a correction or other adequate remedial action if published material is significantly inaccurate or misleading.

Fairness and balance

  1. Ensure that factual material is presented with reasonable fairness and balance, and that writers’ expressions of opinion are not based on significantly inaccurate factual material or omission of key facts.
  2. Ensure that where material refers adversely to a person, a fair opportunity is given for subsequent publication of a reply if that is reasonably necessary to address a possible breach of General Principle 3.

Privacy and avoidance of harm

  1. Avoid intruding on a person’s reasonable expectations of privacy, unless doing so is sufficiently in the public interest.
  2. Avoid causing or contributing materially to substantial offence, distress or prejudice, or a substantial risk to health or safety, unless doing so is sufficiently in the public interest.

Privacy and avoidance of harm

  1. Avoid publishing material which has been gathered by deceptive or unfair means, unless doing so is sufficiently in the public interest.
  2. Ensure that conflicts of interests are avoided or adequately disclosed, and that they do not influence published material.

The Local Project also adheres to the Australian Press Council complaint standards. To submit a complaint, please contact us at

Branded Content

Across our print and digital platforms, The Local Project is supported by advertising. This includes display advertising, and branded advertorial content, whereby The Local Project collaborates with a business to produce an article. We only work with brands we know our readers will be interested in, to publish stories that are genuinely useful to our design-loving community.

On and associated online platforms, our advertorial content is labelled at the top of the article with the words “In partnership with…”.

In our print titles, including The Local Project, The Commercial Project and The Local Marketplace, our advertorial articles are labelled at the bottom of the page with the word “AD”.
