A call from Blankspot for hyper-local stories
We are looking for contributions in the form of short dispatches (maximum 1000 characters including blanks) about hyper-local topics.
My name is Martin Schibbye and I am the editor-in-chief for Blankspot, a Swedish digital publication for local and foreign reporting.
We launched our site during the spring of 2015 through a crowd funding campaign and set the goal to cover the Blank Spots of the world and Sweden (read more about us: https://www.blankspotproject.se/in-english/).
During the fall of 2018 we plan to team up with the NGO One World to highlight the often overlooked role of local reporters and are looking for cooperation with local journalists to produce a series of articles/updates which we will call #postcards
We are looking for contributions in the form of short dispatches (maximum 1000 characters including blanks) about a hyper-local news story in your home country together with a photo.
The more hyper local angle the better.
The purpose is to shed light on the importance of journalism and share information about blank spots in the world.
Stories from regions and countries that are a bit outside of media attention will be prioritized.
If you want to join and contribute:
* Write a short personal “postcard”.
* Add a photo.
* Send your contribution to [email protected]
/ Best regards,
The Blankspot team and One World.
