This Blog

let’s shape the news. together.


Established in January 2013, this blog (“THE PHOTOBLOG”), which is created and written by people at SellNews, deals with the topics of citizen journalism and photography. Over the years, our content has slightly changed but the message has remained the same: citizen media, or user-generated content, is shaping the news industry dramatically. We are part of that media revolution with our news-oriented content platform ( that lets amateurs and professionals sell their photos and videos to the media.*


What else do you need to know?

  • If you happen to scroll through our archive, don’t wonder about strange words. Up until 2016 our content was written for a German-speaking audience.
  • What could also happen is that you stumble upon dead links and incorrectly formatted media files. That’s the problem of changing the “look” too often.
  • Sponsored content and guest contributions are rare and, of course, marked.
  • Consider any erroneous sentence, spelling or punctuation as a quick English test for you.
  • Last but not least, no animals were harmed in the making of this blog.
