Citizen Journalist: Do you want to be one?

Got news?
Written by Donna Bogatin, Contributor on

At Yahoo’s “You Witness News” everyone is entitled to press credentials, since last December in alliance with Reuters:

Were you there when news happened? Upload your photos and video here to have them considered for use in articles and features on Yahoo! News.

The Associated Press is now "mobilizing" an "army" of citizen reporters to "cover the events that define our world," in collaboration with NowPublic.

The goal of the effort is to expand the world’s access to news as it happens.

The Associated Press has a long tradition of pursuing citizen contributions in breaking news events worldwide. This relationship will make that connection even stronger and result in more news and images from people who are in the right place at the right time.
Contributions to the AP news report from NowPublic’s network of participants could take many forms over time. They could range from simple eyewitness accounts to originally produced content.
