Community Event Sponsorship

Every year, Leader aligns itself with over 250 community groups, taking an active role in promoting their events locally. We’ve sponsored everything from fun runs, fundraisers and business breakfasts to art and music festivals.

Need to get the word out about your event? Partner up with Leader to advertise to your local community.


Take your event to the next level.

Having Leader sponsor your event gives you prominent display advertising in both Leader’s print and digital editions, and across our social channels.  Leader will also help bring your event to life by giving complimentary merchandise to your patrons.

In return for the sponsorship, Leader asks for:

  • The opportunity to be recognised as a sponsor on your event’s branding and marketing
  • A promotional Leader stand at the event, featuring complimentary merchandise
  • Opportunities for Leader to message the event database and social channels
  • Corporate hospitality and ticketing opportunities
  • Program advertising opportunities



The events Leader sponsor often make great stories and feature in Leader newspapers in the lead up to events, promoting both the event and its partners.


Be the story

If you’ve got a good angle for a story related to an event you’re supporting, pitch it to one of our reporters for even more potential exposure – if it’s newsworthy enough, it could even make its way to the front page.
