Scoopshot, the global crowdsourcing mobile service for photo and video, announces its global alliance with Ebyline, a company which helps media publishers, agencies and brands to collaborate with professional freelance journalists worldwide by providing workflow tools.
Working with Scoopshot will give Eybline real-time access to over 250,000 photographers from around the world, enabling them to provide original and authenticated photography quickly to complement their content packages.
The business development agreement will fully leverage the assets of both companies to provide media outlets and other clients around the globe with content.
Scoopshot, headquartered in Helsinki, Finland, incorporated and staffed in the U.S., produces fully authenticated mobile photos and video crowdsourcing. There are now more than 250,000 mobile users around the world, which is expected to double in 2013, according to the company.
Last week Scoopshot realised an increase of 50,000 mobile users in a two-day period after a German television station reported on its powerful UGC ecosystem. 10,000 enrolled in a five-hour period.
