You Could be an Award Winning Reporter!

Tuesday, February 15, 2011


Alright, it's pretty clear to all of us who are wanting to get into this industry to realize that news is all around us. Heck, you don't have to be a media-aspiring addict to realize that. Major outlets, such as CNN, see that as well.
Mediabistro announced this afternoon that the world leader in news is awarding everyday citizens on their outstanding reporting. The CNN iReport Awards wil select the best the best content which was submitted by viewers throughout 2010. There will be five categories: Breaking News, Compelling Imagery, Interview, Commentary and Personal Story.
The moral of this story is that anyone who has a camera (or even their phone for that matter), can submit any type of story and become a reporter. It doesn't take someone to have great credentials to report a story. Just make sure a camera is near you, and just maybe, you can get "15 Seconds of Fame" thanks to iReport.

This is a very cool thing! I have never heard of such an idea before. This is a great way to discover new and other talented reporters that people might night other recognize without it. Will you be sending anything in?

It always seems that the most interesting stories happen without a news crew there and that someone just happens to catch it on tape. It is awesome that these stories have a chance to be recongized.

I think everybody could be a journalist. Sometimes if you got lucky something extraordinary happens right in front of you and with a camera, a smartphone, you can be the only one who tape it and you get the scoop.
