Support your local WordPress Essex community
The #wpEssex events are run by a team of volunteers to support the local WordPress community. These not-for-profit events are financially backed by companies that both work with, and have built themselves on WordPress. Become part of the team by completing our sponsorship application today.
This is a great opportunity for companies that benefit from a free and open source software like WordPress to give back to the project that’s given them so much. Many companies are built around WordPress. A company that sponsors might have a lot of customers who love WordPress; other companies might just use WordPress, love it, and want to give back.
Annual accounts for the WordPress Essex meetup will be published on https://wpessex.org/ our financial policy is to be as transparent as possible.
Some guiding principles
All sponsors are expected to support the WordPress project and its principles, including:
- No discrimination on the basis of economic or social status, race, colour, ethnic origin, national origin, creed, religion, political belief, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, age, or disability.
- No incitement to violence or promotion of hate
- No spammers
- No jerks
- Respect the WordPress trademark.
- Embrace the WordPress license; If distributing WordPress-derivative works (themes, plugins, WP distros), any person or business officially associated with WordCamp should give their users the same freedoms that WordPress itself provides: 100% GPL or compatible, the same guidelines we follow on WordPress.org.
- Don’t promote companies or people that violate the trademark or distribute WordPress derivative works which aren’t 100% GPL compatible.
The above is accredited to the WordCamp handbook on ‘Local WordCamp Sponsoship‘ and applies to the WordPress Essex meetup.
If you would like further support with your application please feel free to contact us. We are a very accessible team that want to support both new and seasoned speakers from in and around the WordPress community. As a team, we’re available to chat on Slack, you can also catch us on Twitter, or you can message the organisers directly via our meetup page.
