Balita Pinoy Launches Its News Agency To Cater For Citizen Journalists
Balita Pinoy?is?launching its news agency, which is essentially for?'Citizen Journalism' - the news service?where?you tell the stories.?Send us?your news stories, images and video.
Balita Pinoy News Agency (BPNA)?will take stories, photos and videos from contributors and try to resell them to other agencies and news services and newspapers, splitting the fees 50:50.
There are many times every minute of every day when something happens and news reporters from the major agencies are not there on the scene to record it. Or in fact the big boys may be there but miss something newsworthy while you get it recorded on your camera or phone/video.
Nearly everyone now has a cellphone with a camera/video facility in it. Put it to use.
You may also have a story of your own local community or group you wish to get more exposure, send it to BPNA to get it aired.
This type of freedom of speech gives the man or woman on the street a voice and a platform.
