News is changing, and we want you, our readers, to be a part of it.
Across all forms of media, news is increasingly driven by users, from life-changing moments captured on smart phones, to videos of tragedies and eye-witness accounts.
At the Derbyshire Times, we want to make it even easier for readers to submit their stories, so we have launched a new system allowing you to upload straight to our website.
Just log onto www.derbyshiretimes.co.uk and scroll down to the Share Your Story section and click, to easily upload stories, videos and pictures.
We want our readers to have a proper say in what matters to them most, so we are throwing down the gauntlet and giving YOU the chance to make headlines.
Have you reached a milestone? Broken a record? Beaten the best? We love a feel-good story, especially if it comes with a photograph and video of any celebrations.
The service is ideal for charity bids. Whether you’re bathing in beans or baking a cake, tell us what you’re doing to make a difference in your community and we’ll get right behind you.
You need to sign up to the website to use the service, which will also allow you to comment on any other stories and join in the dialogue.
This isn’t going to replace the newsroom – it is a way of making it as easy as possible for people to join in the debate and submit their views alongside reporter-driven news coverage.
