Now that he's in office, what does the world think President Obama should do?
We're about to find out.
Every month Talk To US asks the global community a different question about the news, and citizen journalists upload video responses across the globe. The best video responses are aired live as part of Worldfocus.
In light of the new president's mandate to be a better global neighbor, the first question is "What's your advice for President Barack Obama?"
It's an unusual opportunity for citizen journalists, whose message could be broadcast on-air to television sets across America.
But GroundReport also knows that high-quality video production takes work, so it has pledged to offer a $5 bounty for each video response that meets the following guidelines:
1. You must live outside the United States and be a non-US citizen.
2. Your video must be 1:00 (one minute) or less in length.
3. Your video resolution must be good enough for TV.
4. You may submit multiple entries, but we will only distribute one bounty per reporter.
5. You must submit by February 15, 2009.
GroundReport has always compensated its reporters and hopes to support further citizen journalism excellence through Talk To US, a partnership with WNET/Channel Thirteen.
Speaking about the project, Neal Shapiro, President and CEO of WNET.ORG said, "The next generation of television programming is the innovative use of bringing web video to television."
He added that, "Through our new 'Talk To Us' feature on 'Worldfocus' in partnership with GroundReport, viewers will gain local insight and access to foreign coverage and see what's really going on in the world in a way traditional news organizations are unable to report."
