Today, anyone with a smartphone can shoot, edit and upload content to their blog then promote it on Twitter – in minutes.
Dictators, policemen and footballers have learnt this the hard way.
We love citizen journalism here at IdeasTap, which is why we’re celebrating it with the new monthly Mobilise brief. We’re looking for photos and videos that tell bite-sized stories from your community - about you, the people around you and your environment.
This month the theme is:
Interpret it how you like, but remember, we’re looking for work that tells us something about your life.
You can apply with one photograph or a one-minute video – but you have to shoot it on your phone. You can use any apps you like to edit your work, but don’t feel you have to. Mobilise is open to 16-19-year-old members who are based in the UK.
The winner each month gets £100 with four runners up getting £25.
We’ll pick a shortlist of 10 and then, in the democratic spirit of the brief, IdeasTap members will vote to decide the winner and four runners up.

This brief closes at 5pm on Thursday 30 June.
