Our simple App makes it easy for you to earn a little extra cash for being in the right place at the right time. Plus it protects your rights, ensuring you get the recognition you deserve.

What kind of submissions do you want?

Raw, un-edited video is best.  The media outlets we sell to do the hard work of being a reporter. What they need is good video and photos to help them bring the story to life.

How much can I earn?

The media sets the price they're willing to pay for assignments, typically between $5 and $25. The more assignments you respond to, the more you can earn.

How do I get paid?

If your submission is sold, we'll send you an e-mail to notify you. At that time, we'll ask you to update your profile with your PayPal information, and we'll send your payment as soon at the money comes in. Don't have PayPal account? Create a Paypal Account now.

Do you have to give my name to the media outlets?

No. We realize that some contributors would prefer to remain anonymous and we provide that option during the upload process. Even if you wish to stay anonymous, you can still sell your submission and get paid.

Why didn't my submission get used? I saw something similar get sold but I think mine is better.

The media outlet always makes the decision. Please continue contributing and check out our "tips" section to see how you can improve the quality of your submissions.

What does the App do?

Use the App instead of your phone's normal camera to capture videos and photos.  The app automatically sends your submission to the media outlets most likely to use it—saving you the hassle of uploading it yourself.

Just record, enter a few details, and we'll do the rest.

Our App also allows media outlets to send you assignments so that you can cash-in on being in the right place at the right time.

Can I share my news with friends?

Yes, and we encourage it! After you record something, simply turn Facebook and Twitter posting "on" to share with your friends, family, and followers. Your submission is protected, ensuring it won't be used without giving you the recognition you deserve.
