Arctic Deeply is an independent digital media project dedicated to covering Arctic issues. Our team, a mix of journalists and technologists, aims to build a better user experience of the story by providing news and analysis in an easily accessible platform. Our hope is to add greater clarity, deeper understanding and more sustained public engagement at a critical moment in Arctic policy.
Arctic Deeply is a part of News Deeply, a media startup and social enterprise based in New York. We are registered as a B Corp, or Benefit Corporation, with the stated mission of advancing foreign policy literacy through public service journalism. We receive no government funding, instead earning our revenues through a mix of foundation grants and digital-design services. Our client partners include the World Economic Forum, Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism and the Baker Institute at Rice University.
We want anyone who comes to Arctic Deeply to walk away smarter and better informed about what’s happening in the region. We’re fielding your feedback and story ideas through [email protected].

He also worked as a reporter and assistant editor for Nunatsiaq News in Iqaluit, Nunavut. In these roles he won more than a dozen regional and national newspaper awards. His writing has also appeared in the Globe and Mail, and his takes on northern politics have been featured in broadcasts by the CBC, APTN and CTV.

We are always interested in receiving story pitches for news features and interviews, as well as videos, audio stories and photo essays.
We are also interested in receiving submissions from researchers, community leaders and policymakers for our community op-ed section.
We regret that, owing to the volume of submissions we receive, we may contact only writers whose work we will commission.
Arctic Deeply covers the issues facing the 4 million people that call the North home. We cover economic development, environmental change, indigenous rights, energy, conservation and governance through written journalism, photography, video and commentaries.
Arctic Deeply is editorially independent and is part of News Deeply, the digital media and community building company that Time Magazine called “the future of news.”
