Some people are sitting around talking about citizen journalism. YouTube just announced a partnership with Pulitzer Center, Sony and Intel to put 10,000 bucks on the table for the best untold story. They are putting the video below out as a source of inspiration.
Not sure why they have restricted it to entrants from the countries where YouTube is localised, i.e. Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Korea, New Zealand, Spain, The Netherlands, the United Kingdom (England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales), and the fifty United States and District of Columbia. More rules posted here.
