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.
- 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.
- 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 :)
