Demotix

Turi Munthe of Demotix says the parternship offers 'a valuable commercial connection between the most authentic and compelling content creators and the most forward-thinking newsrooms'

Citizen photo wire Demotix has announced a partnership with social newswire Storyful, which will see the creation of a real-time wire service.

According to an announcement by both parties, Demotix content will be "delivered through a dedicated channel on the StoryfulPro platform".

"Clients will now have the ability to source from a comprehensive real-time feed of content, discovered and verified by Storyful alongside rights-cleared imagery from the Demotix network."

Chief executive of Storyful Mark Little said the new channel "meets the great challenge facing journalists in a social age – how can we find user-generated content that we can trust and safely use in our stories?".

Turi Munthe, chief executive of Demotix, said: "By combining Storyful's discovery and verification system with the vast reach of the Demotix network, we can offer a valuable commercial connection between the most authentic and compelling content creators and the most forward-thinking newsrooms".

As well as Demotix content being published via Storyful, Journalism.co.uk understands Demotix will look to license Storyful's breaking news material.
