CompanyNewsGallery Pty Ltd (the Company) was co-founded in 2004 with Imagination Corporation to develop an innovative online press release publishing and distribution platform that would use the power of search and news aggregation to help members reach a broader market. The Company won a Yellow Pages Business Ideas Grant (South Australia) in 2004 and in the same year was awarded a Commercialising Emerging Technology (COMET) Grant by the Australian Government. This has assisted the company in developing its NewsMaker system for sharing, publishing and editing news and to pursue the development of new social web communities.
