Journalism facing difficult times

Unframed Media is founded as a result of a combination of negative developments within journalism. Journalism is increasingly threatened. Where journalists used to be able to do their job undisturbed, in some cases with a ‘PRESS vest’, the field has now been [hardened]. Journalists are more often the target which causes an decrease of journalists in many countries.

Also, there is less and less budget to [get journalistic feet on the ground]. In many times editors search the internet for data.

At the same time, the number of mobile phones with cameras is growing enormously and the digital infrastructure to send photos is growing fast in many countries. Nevertheless, we still see a decrease in reporting from hard to reach areas, such as central Afrika.

Unframed Media connects the worlds together of the citizen who wants to make a story known to the world, and a journalist who wants to make news. Look at the animation below to see how we do this.

Functions

It all starts with the person whom has imagery on his phone and wants to share his or her story. These images will be send to us through a chatbot, which is connected to Facebook.

After our editorial staff grants permission, it will be shown on our [central] platform. From here the imagery is available for international media, that can purchase it and use it for enriching journalism.

Part of the income is retransferred back to the area where the images were taken, through our local partner.
