BBC project offers training and equipment to citizen journalists

The BBC World Service is offering citizen journalists equipment and training for its "Your Story" project, as well as the chance to have their content featured on major BBC news programs.

Your Story is the BBC World Service's citizen journalism project, running since June 2008. Anyone can send in ideas for stories and news reports, or personal stories, photos, audio and video.

Through the program, BBC broadcast journalists work with individuals to pursue report ideas and will provide them with recording equipment, training and advice. Some of the generated content ends up online, while some goes on air and may be broadcast on major BBC news programs such as the Newshour and the World Today.
