Sponsorship Application

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.
