Medium: the only rule we have is that your idea must be published in a digital format via TYP. This doesn't mean it has to be a traditional journalistic piece — we can develop custom layouts and interactions for your content.
Relevancy: how does your idea help explore, define, or celebrate the Asian American experience? We’re looking for potential contributions that can help advance our mission.
Originality: are you presenting a novel topic or a fresh point of view? Even if the particular subject itself is already broadly discussed, maybe you have a creative way or approaching it!
Craft: how are you specifically going to contribute to this idea, and what will you need help on from others? Ideally, you have a general skeleton of what the end product will look like, and also a realistic picture of what you want to handle on your own (are you a writer or photographer?), and what you might need help on (an illustration or data analysis?).
