Announcing Scoopshot as the latest sponsor of news:rewired – digital stories

We’re pleased to announce Finnish mobile photo service Scoopshot as the latest sponsor of news:rewired – digital stories, which takes place on Thursday 6 December.

The one-day conference will bring together key digital journalism experts and innovators for a day of sessions, workshops, debates and discussion, geared towards equipping delegates with knowledge of the latest techniques and tools for producing top-notch digital journalism.

Scoopshot launched at the end of 2011. Its citizen journalism app allows users to take a photo or film video, and set a price for the content and then send it off to be sold to a news outlet. Here is more on Scoopshot’s approach to verification of the content.

Scoopshot’s vice president Eric Siereveld will join the mobile reporting panel at news:rewired – digital stories, which will look at a number of useful apps and ideas for using a mobile phone for reporting, plus a run through of just some of the interesting initiatives from news outlets in the mobile space.

“Scoopshot is a game changer,” Siereveld said. “It brings hundreds of thousands of global and local smartphone users at your fingertips to deliver the unique content that you need, in seconds.

“Furthermore it also brings you hundreds of pro and freelance photographers all over the world, at your fingertips. Don’t miss it”.

Tickets are still available for the conference for just £130 (+VAT). Lunch and refreshments will also be provided at the day-long event, as well as networking drinks afterwards.

There is also a news:rewired PLUS ticket option for just £310 (+VAT), which includes both a day’s intensive training on the Wednesday (5 December) and the day-long conference on the Thursday (6 December).

Delegates can choose one of three two options for the day of intensive training: Introduction to Data Journalism, run by Paul Bradshaw; Online Media Law, run by David Banks or Advanced Online Research Skills, run by Colin Meek (now sold out).

If you select a news:rewired PLUS ticket we will contact you to confirm which training course you would like to attend on the Wednesday and provide further details. Space on these training courses will be limited and running of them will be subject to demand.
