Citizenside – Journalism At Play

Posted in film, Media, photography, web by aldorf on August 3, 2011

Citizenside’s goal is to create the largest online community of amateur and independent reporters where everyone can share their vision of the news by uploading photos and videos for fellow reporters to see.

sell photos videos to the press and media around the world.

If you have an interesting news-related image or video, Citizenside will contact media outlets on your behalf and offers you a much higher percentage of the sales price than those offered by traditional agencies (up to 75%).

Citizenside has around 10.000 regular contributors. In 2008 it sold the first public video of french trader Jerome Kerviel–whose illicit trade cost French bank Société Générale billions of dollars. The video was syndicated to several publications for around EUR 100.000

Citizenside was created in 2006 by three young associates passionate about the news (two cousins and a friend!) whose complementary experience offers you the best representation when it comes to selling your content.

In November 2007, Agence France-Presse (AFP), the 3rd largest news agency in the world, and the IAM company became shareholders in the Citizenside agency (formerly Scooplive). Primary shareholder of the IAM company and ex-CEO of France Televisions, Xavier Gouyou-Beauchamps, then became president of Citizenside.

Realism – Exhibition At Hypo Kulturstiftung Munich

Posted in art by aldorf on August 5, 2010

If you are in Munich and want to see an excellent curated exhibition stop by at Hypo Kulturstiftung. A great collection of international works by Courbet, Hopper, Gursky, Ruff and many more. Maybe not the best spot to present the work but still art worth to worship. My new discovery at the exhibition the works of Juan Francisco Casas. Photolike drawings by ballpen.
