As part of the ongoing process to develop a premier platform for citizen journalism we have made a GlobalNewsmen Badge program for our valued users. We believe the badges below will help our users build credibility and accessibility places where newsworthy content can be sought. Check if you are eligible for the following badges:
Eligibility: 10 reports rated as "Amateur" by News Channels or Newspapers.
Request this badge as soon as you meet the eligibility criteria; it may help you gain backstage access to events where you can take closer and better quality pictures, videos and interview participants, and it will also serve as an indicator that your reports have been acknowledged and appreciated by the News.
Eligibility: 10 reports rated as "professional." by News Channels or Newspapers.
Request this badge as the quality of your reports increases. This is a badge of a higher rank and it can make your credibility stronger and may open more doors for you. In need of publicity, advertisers and event organizers are usually more eager to accommodate a professional rather than an amateur, and you will be likely to gain access to places of greater interest.
Eligibility: 2 years since you join GlobalNewsmen and 50 reports rated as "professional."
Claim this badge as your highest achievement with GlobalNewsmen. It works just like the other two press passes, but it also shows that you are persistent in achieving your goals as newsman and that you have built a solid reputation over the course of two years.
To claim your GlobalNewsmen Badge when you have reached any of the above results, simply go to contact us page and write your name, email, physical address where you want your badge to be shipped and do not forget to mention the badge type you want to receive. Please note that you profile picture will be used on your badge. We will verify that your eligibility and mail your badge to you. We will pay for shipping. It's that simple.
