Witness Journal comes from the experience of a journalists and photographers’ team, joined together in order to create a different and innovative project in the information system. Far from the standard business model, Witness proposes a different approach to information, according to many different points of view. It's a free, online monthly photo-magazine developed by an editorial staff and thanks to the contribute of professional journalist and photographers, as well as citizen journalists.
Distributed for free via the Internet, Witness Journal tells small and big Italian and international stories through images by professional photographers and amateurs. Firmly open to the contributions of anyone, Witness offers to the authors a journalistic limelight where they have the chance to express their skills and to promote their works. At the same time, we offer our readers a different kind of information in compliance with many different aspects. First, we consider images, and not words, all-important.
The stories told by Witness Journal are reported exclusively on the base of facts, that is pictures. The articles – written by the photographers in cooperation with the editorial staff – add extra information to the context Witness’ editorial line tends to give voice to events and local stories and above all to what we can hardly find on mainstream information. Thanks to the net we get in touch with a network of co-workers on the whole Italian territory. A network of professionals and amateurs who have the chance to speak out, thanks to the digital world and to Web 2.0 phenomenon. Witness Journal wants you to listen to their voices.
