Getting an image online and on TV

Paul Trotter at PC Advisor notes that Endemol UK is working with a photo blogging site to find images for a TV programme marking the rise of the citizen journalist.

The company behind reality show Big Brother is putting together content for ITV1’s “I was there: the people’s review of 2006” programme, which is due for broadcast either later this year or early in 2007.

Blogging site Fotothing has been enlisted to find suitable shots, which could be anything from photos from the World Cup, or videos from the recent coup in Thailand, it said.

Well, here again is a Public Relations opportunity to contribute. This is great because it offers both online and television exposure.
