'We've just launched a shared moblog with Scoopt, the citizen journalism agency.
We recognise that you as a moblogUK member are amongst those most likely to know what to do with a newsworthy image or video that you've captured; ordinarily, you'd send it to your moblog. By partnering with Scoopt we are able to offer a shared space where you can send in any images that you think are worthy of print.
Mostly for celebrity and breaking news shots, this shared moblog exists for you to post images that you think the traditional press would want to publish, and you make money along the way, in fact Scoopt shares whatever fee they get with you 50/50.
Scoopt will represent your rights in selling your posts to the worldwide press, and you don't need to do anything different, just post to scoopt (at) moblg (dot) net as usual from your cameraphone or email client.
As far as we know this is a world first, that is, a photo sharing site creating a way for it's members to have their content marketed to the press, and we want to know what you think, there is a forum post for discussion
, and you can see the moblog here
This moblog is open to moblogUK members only.
