At The Standard, we’re local and we love it.
There are countless reasons we love to call the south-west home – and you can see a few dozen of them in this short video featuring some of the amazing work of our passionate photographers and journalists.
The local faces and places showcased in this video represent just a fraction of the stories we tell.

Everyone here at The Standard feels privileged to be able to bring you the local stories that matter – whether we are breaking news as it happens, celebrating the champions and the quiet achievers who inspire us, or asking the important questions of our community’s key decision-makers.
