Scoopt – citizen journalists get an outlet

For some reason, I saw Scoopt, thought it was a great idea, and neglected to write anything about it here! Anyway, allow me to do so now… From their FAQ:

> What is Scoopt?

> Scoopt is a media agency that has been created specifically to help members of the public sell photographs and videos of newsworthy events to the press.

There’s been a sudden interest in “citizen journalism” – at least in the UK – following the exclusives captured by cameraphones in the London Underground on 7th July and Scoopt is there specifically for this kind of reporting.

Anyway, right now Scoopt exists as a great idea, in need of more members from the general public. Join up on the Scoopt site.
