You must be sure that the article for which you write must be in press release format which appears like a News Story. The type of article/post which you should always avoid is on How-to, Event announcement, job alert and etc that fall nearly or on this categories.
Because this will not be consider as new in the eye of Google. But even if you do try to exclude it from the sitemap.
4 Pages You Must Have
Must Have More Than 3 Authors
This is quite obvious that the website which you are submitting for Google News Approval must have 10 or more Post Every Single Day and which is impossible for one author to execute. So, make sure you make enough writers to do 10+ Post every day.
Author Bio On Each Post
Though this step is not mandatory but it increases the chances of approval as having an Author Bio after each and every post makes it looks more realistic.
Your article must be divided into Proper Categories and have proper Tags
As you see in Newspaper that all the News are not mixed together in a dirty manner rather they are well categorized in to various section for better reader experience.Same goes with our Website too, you must arrange your post into matched categories for better reader experience and also mainly as Google will ask you for different sections like Headlines, Technology, Entertainment, Current Updates and etc while you will apply for Google News.

So, you can now understand that even if you have fulfilled all the guidelines stills your site can be rejected if it lacks proper Grammar formatting and its uses.
Google News Sitemap and Proper News Keyword Tags
The Google News sitemap is bit different from other sitemap that you generally use for your blogs and all. A Google News sitemap will have only 1000 URLs indexed at a time.Don’t skip this step because many do the mistake of not creating Google News Sitemap. Google mainly want you to define the content type, name of your publication, language, access, genre, publication date( W3C format), title, keyword, etc.
The Google News sitemap is a great way to further segment your news content.
Beside, you also need one more additional tag called news_keywords tag, however this step is not a mandatory one but why shall you not do if it increase chances of approval.
Always use Robot.txt or Meta Tags

For this you can make utilize of robot.txt file, which Utilize the Robots Exclusion Standard to Ensure that the news stories are accessible by these search engine crawlers.
Make use of the all new Standout Tag
Google recently introduced Standout Tag to use if you or your team published an extraordinary Content(News Story). You can use this tags on Self-publishing articles or citing third-party original sources.
Note: If you are using Standout Tag avoid using it more than 7 times in a calendar week.
