Tips & Guidance


The title is the first thing others will see of you petition. It should state clearly, what your concern is and invite to read on. Without a striking title your concern may go unnoticed.


Direct your request to the recipient, who can really make a decision about it. In the case of a petition, your political concerns are addressed to a (partial) state recipient (free of charge). For campaigns with non-governmental recipients, we charge a one-off service fee.

Requirement & justification

Clarify the problem. Why does it have to be done NOW? Is a decision coming up? Are facts being created? Make a concrete claim! How do supporters contribute to the solution?

Meaningful image

The perfect picture sums up your petition at the first sight. A picture can underline your issue, attract attention and motivate people to sign the petition. Petitions with pictures are more spreaded by people than without a picture. You can find royalty-free images here and here
Make sure you have the rights of use necessary for using the picture.
