Telegraph deal with user-generated newswire Demotix

By nikkiwicks

The Telegraph has subscribed to Demotix, a user-generated newswire that allows anyone to post stories and pictures from around the world.

The partnership will see the Demotix Widget appear on the World News page of Telegraph.co.uk, providing images and news stories from its 5,600 users around the world.

The deal is the first in the UK but the Telegraph joins Le Monde in France, Lebanon’s Future News and the Himalayan Times of Nepal.

Justin William, assistant editor at the Telegraph, said: “The Telegraph was the first UK media organisation to spot the immense potential of Demotix and its global network of correspondents.”
