Be an official Olympics citizen reporter!

Report on The Greatest Show On Earth!

In the summer of 2012 the eyes of the world will be on London as the best gather from around the globe. The Olympics, Para Olympics and Cultural Olympiad have set the stage for a spectacular showcase. There are already missiles on peoples' roofs, and an aircraft carrier in the Thames. Around 50,000 security personnel will be on duty in the Olympic boroughs, including 13,500 from the British army, more than in Afghanistan. With ASBOs for "undesirable" residents, harassment of journalists by private security, and new powers against civil liberties afforded by the London Olympics Act 2006, you don't want to miss your chance to say "I was part of the greatest show on earth".

As the official citizen reporters of London 2012, the London Street Reporters Network gives you the opportunity to hone your skills and meet the reporting challenges. Taking place in venues across London, the official protest of the games is starting, and you can sign up to cover it. You can make a start by creating an account with London Street Reporters.

Join the Citizen Reporters Olympics!
Go for Gold - events include:

100 metres run from the police (knock-out competition)

"You're not invited 2012" - find the most undesirable Olympics citizen

Come on down to the Citizen Reporters'Village and create a lasting memory of London and the Games!

Be wary of bogus sites claiming to give you unbiased reporting of the Games. Ensure you only register with our authorized website. And watch the official Olympics video channel.

'what do human rights mean to you', or simply review some of the films and activities taking place during the week of the festival

visionOntv will be kicking off this year's Roehampton Human Rights film festival with a workshop to help you to make short news reports and and upload them to the web using just a mobile phone. The workshop is free and open to everyone, and will take place at the University of Roehampton in Duchesne 103 between 4pm and 6pm on Monday December 5th.

There will also be a related competition as part of the festival for the best news reports we receive that either answer the question 'what do human rights mean to you', or simply review some of the films and activities taking place during the week of the festival itself. If you want to enter the competition, simply post your entry to the Headmix channel here on VisionOntv

The film festival itself has been put together by Roehampton students but everyone is welcome to attend any of the screenings, all of which are free. We hope to see you there and look forward to seeing your news reports! Please reply here if you have any questions, or email me at d.tinham@roehampton.ac.uk
