Rs 10000 for photos
Do you work in the tech hubs of Bangalore, Gurgaon, Noida or Hyderabad? And see yourself as a Citizen Journalist (CJ)?
Do you have a nose for news but prefer anonymity as you have a boring (slightly boring?) but lucrative full time job at an IT / BPO / KPO company? And so would prefer your 100 word articles would go under a pseudonym rather than a real name? Anonymity guaranteed.
We pay Rs. 1,250 for 100 word human interest snippets or photos from the IT, BPO, KPO, Telecom and Startups ecosystem. This includes short overviews of conferences and social gatherings.
Techgoss has received funds for an additional 50 snippets and photos every month over and above our 2011 budgets. So, we are looking for more contributors to our site in 2012.
For really exclusive photos we will pay you between Rs. 5000 – Rs. 10,000, for most you will get a minimum of Rs. 1000. Anonymity guaranteed if you prefer your name is not used with the photo. Not sure if your photo is suitable? Email us at techgoss [@] hotmail.com as well as editor [@] techgoss.com and someone from the team will call you to discuss the photo. This link has more details of the photos we need.
We guarantee anonymity to all our contributors. And if you have a PayPal, ICICI or HDFC account your payments will be made within 5 working days.
Currently, Techgoss has a reward of Rs. 15000 to anyone who can tell us about two Indian origin hacks – one to Africa and one to UK – linked to a Google IP address in India. Details at this link
