WeSay Photo Contest!

I have browsed around over at SocialSpark for a while. I don't have enough time to do the paid posts for "a living". If I post something in my blog it needs to be relevant and interesting. Well, I got an email today about an opportunity. Ok~ I go check it out. It was for this site WeSay.

WeSay is an Online New Site. I like their tag line "Your News. Your Photos. Your Voice." They post photos from mainstream media. They also want to publish photos from the amateur photographer. They want to give everyone the opportunity to participate in the news gathering process. "We" the people have lots of eyes and ears and cameras and cellphones to snap away at the news and current events happening around us everyday. Check them out, I did. I liked what I saw.

This is what I got from browsing their sight. WeSay is a place for photographers to get their work seen. It was plugged as "news photos" at first. But what they really want is "current event" photos. I traveled through WeSay and indeed I found some really great and interesting "news" photos. And I found some really great "current event" photos. Besides being a really cool place; WeSay is having a photo contest. The Contest Ends 3-31-09... so get your entries in soon! Who couldn't use a new printer or gift certificates to Ritz Camera? What is your category? So I say " check out WeSay for yourself"! There's an amateur photographer in each of us. Let me know "news" you saw today!
