Mobile Citizen Journalism Challenge
21 March 2013
DocHouse in partnership with Truthloader are challenging people all around the UK to become Citizen Journalists, using the technology available at their fingertips. All you have to do is make a film on your mobile phone on a topic you care about or a subject you want to investigate, upload it to youtube, and not only could you win an iPhone5 handset, your film could be featured on Citizen Journalism YouTube site Truthloader.
What are you passionate about? What gets your goat? What does the mainstream media miss? What’s your perspective?
Make a film on your mobile phone on a topic you care about or a subject you want to investigate. Whether you want to highlight an issue, give someone else a voice or tell a story that’s personal to you, this is your chance to say it in your way.
