Post an original news article (Special): Hover over the red Contribute button at the top of the page and click Post News. Note this feature is for Digital Journalists only (if you're not yet a Digital Journalist, you will be prompted to become one). On this page, we're looking for you to submit a news article with an interview or on-the-ground report where you are the source. A press conference, sporting event, an interview with a politician -- these are examples of what we call original reporting. When you're submitting your article, be sure to check the "Extra effort" box to indicate your article is an original report. Here's more info on original reporting.
Post an "In the media" article: Hover over the red Contribute button at the top of the page and click Post News. Note this feature is for Digital Journalists only (if you're not yet a Digital Journalist, you will be prompted to become one). On this page, we're looking for you to submit a news article or summary based on sources you've found online. Did the President announce something? Did a company launch a new product or service? Publish a news article and link to your sources so readers can learn about what's happening. Here's more info on linking to multiple sources and publishing an "In the media" report.
Post a blog in a Group: Click on the Groups link on the top of the page and check out various Groups created by Digital Journal members.

Click this link to post a blog in a Group. You can see an example of a Group here.
Submit a revision on a news article and have it approved: Go to on any news article and click the "Edit" button found at the top right. Submit editorial suggestions on spelling, grammar, missing words, etc. and then click "Submit revision." The Digital Journalist who wrote the article can then approve your edits. Here's more info on submitting revisions.
Upload Top-rated original photography: Hover on the red Contribute button on the top of the page and then select Upload Images. Or add original photos in an article or blog. You'll be taken to a prompt where you can select images on your computer to upload, and be sure to check the box indicating you took the photos. You will earn points for uploading original photography that people Like. So every time someone clicks the Like button on your original photo, you earn points.
