Open Signal's online streaming website is a central hub for Portland to see itself and be seen.

We highlight work from local, independent media makers and community organizations. We believe in creating people-driven alternatives to mass media—and that media should be available anytime, from anywhere.


We are currently accepting submissions of work to host on the local content section of this website.


Guidelines 

  • All work must be locally produced in the greater Portland, OR Area.
  • We request that you share links to work that is already online on one of these public platforms: Vimeo, YouTube, Facebook. 
  • All work submitted must be originally produced and cannot contain copyrighted material or commercial content. 
  • There are no age limitations for submitters. We encourage emerging media makers to submit their work to be featured alongside experienced media makers.
  • We are a youth friendly website. If the content you are submitting is mature* in language or content (anything above PG-13), YOU MUST add a viewer discretion slate to the start of your video that states "The following is intended only for mature audiences.  Viewer discretion is advised." If you do not have a disclaimer then the video will not be on the online video streaming website but can be on our cable channels during safe harbor hours.
  • Content submitted will also be featured on our local cable access channels.  

*Mature content includes: excessive adult language, drugs, or implied use of drugs, sex acts or implied sex acts.


Benefits

  • Because we host work that is already on a public platform (YT, FB, Vimeo) views of your videos on our website count towards views on your YT, FB or Vimeo.
  • We have an established audience, leading to increased views of your content.
  • You get to show off the brilliant work Portland has to offer :)




We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
