Would be photographers around the country can now be nominated for a new award that recognises the growing phenomenon of citizen journalism.

Created by the Press Gazette and Nokia, the Nokia Citizen Journalism Awards are open to any member of the public that has had a photo or video clip published or used by a newspaper, magazine, broadcast service, internet news service, blog or photo sharing website in the last 12 months.

The growing usage of camera phones, camcorders and other recording equipment has largely driven the explosion in citizen journalism in recent years.

The luckily winner will take home a complete Citizen Journalism pack including the Nokia N90 cameraphone, photo printer and membership to the Flickr photo sharing website.

The deadline for entries is June 30th and those interested can enter via the awards website:
