Currently we put all details on how to submit on: (but maybe improvements
can be made here since it's unclear whether people even manage to get
to this page itself).

And in the Feedback section of every issue, eg:

And lately one of us blogs about it at least once per cycle

But I'd say the way we get most contributors is by personally
approaching people throughout the community to participate, both Amber
and I have pulled people from our LoCo teams, and I regularly approach
the Ubuntu Women and Ubuntu Beginners teams for help.

If you have other suggestions for advertising the process we'd be
happy to hear them, but I suspect it's just a tedious job and not many
people want to bother rather than a systematic "I don't know how to
contribute" problem.

Sounds like a good idea, what infrastructure pieces does dev news currently use?
