Demotix: a virtual agent for citizen journalists

Demotix is a citizen-journalism website and photo agency.
Imagine a community driven news agency that allows you to share your story, in photos or videos, and market it to the mainstream media. That is Demotix.

“Demotix was founded with two principles at its heart – the freedom of speech and the freedom to know. Its objective is nothing if not ambitious – to rescue journalism and promote free expression by connecting independent journalists with the traditional media.”

Basic, non-exclusive rights to your photos will sell for anything between $150 and $3,000 USD. Non-exclusive rights to your video: $500-1,000/minute. Exclusive rights: whatever we can get. And some photos and videos can go for $100,000s. In all cases, you get exactly 50% and you retain the copyright.

STOP SELLING STOCK PHOTOGRAPHY AND START SELLING YOUR TRUTH
