Mochila, the NY-based content syndication company we interviewed last month has signed another distribution deal, this time with Citizen Image. This comes after deals in September with Reuters and Belo. We know distribution for any content network is key and the Mochila team is following-through with their promise of creating a fully distributed network.
Citizen Image is an image agency that professionally represents photographic and video content of citizen photojournalists to editorial outlets around the world. As a photographer you can sell your images and it has been a very popular service for individuals in consumer journalism.
“Mochila provides our citizen photojournalists not only another easy way to profit from their creativity but also a means to share their work with a broader range of audiences,” said Joe Bransom, president of Citizen Image. “There is a growing demand for image content and an untapped source of photographers at various skill levels, and the Mochila media marketplace meets this need.”
“With the addition of Citizen Image as a content provider and growing importance of user-generated content, Mochila continues to serve as the prime destination for web-based and offline publishers of any size to acquire content for their sites à la carte and on-demand,” said Keith McAllister, CEO of Mochila. “This serves as a tremendous step towards the growth of our photo library and is indicative of the demand for all forms of content, professional and user generated. We feel that this latest relationship will continue to level the playing field for publishers of all sizes and enhance the richness and growth of the Mochila marketplace.”
