How to post iReports

So you say you have a story to tell? One the rest of the world needs to hear? You've come to the right place. Post it here on iReport and it may well get picked up for CNN. Here's a look at the many ways to post your iReport:

 

Upload on the web

Use the upload form on the iReport site. Just click "upload" from the top right corner of any page of iReport, fill out the form, and post up to 10 files in any combination of video, photos and audio.

 

  • Format: Up to 10 files, in any combination of video, photos and audio
  • Max file size: 600 MB total for all file

 

 

E-mail

Visit your profile page to create a custom e-mail address for posting iReports by e-mail. To e-mail in a story, send a photo or video as an attachment. Your subject line will be the headline of your story, and the body of your e-mail will provide the description. Be careful to strip out any auto-signatures since any content of your e-mail will post publicly to iReport (and you probably don't want to publish your mobile number, for example).

 

  • Format: One photo, video or audio file
  • Max file size: 20MB

 

 

E-mail anonymously

You can also e-mail a story to ireport@cnn.com, which will post it to iReport under an anonymous user account. Later, you can visit the story on iReport and claim it as your own to move it under your iReport account.

To e-mail in a story, send a photo or video as an attachment. Your subject line will be the headline of your story, and the body of your e-mail will provide the description. Again, be careful to strip out any auto-signatures since any content of your e-mail will post publicly to iReport.

 

  • Format: One photo, video or audio file
  • Max file size: 20MB

 

 

CNN apps for mobile

You can post iReports and get the latest assignments from most of CNN's apps for mobile, including iPhone and iPod Touch, Android, Nokia Symbian phones, Nokia S-40, and Android Tablet. Visit CNN Mobile to download the latest versions.

 

iReport app for Android

You can post iReports (and lots more) from the iReport App for Android.

 

iMovie for Mac and iOS

Publish iReports directly from iMovie for Mac and iOS. With the iMovie app for iOS, you can even create a video with a custom iReport theme, complete with TV-ready graphics and a very newsy soundtrack.

 

Final Cut Pro

Publish videos directly to iReport from Final Cut Pro X with the software's built-in sharing feature.

 

Facebook

Tag "CNN iReport" in a photo or video, and it will post to the CNN iReport page wall on Facebook, where CNN iReport producers may see it and reach out to you for more information.

 

Twitter, Instagram and Vine

Tag #cnnireport on your most newsworthy photos, videos and posts. CNN iReport producers keep an eye on that tag and may reach out to you for more information. (And while you're at it, be sure to follow us on Twitter and Instagram.)

 

Phew. That's it! Now that you know all the many ways to post iReports, head over to the Assignment Desk to pick up some story ideas. Happy iReporting

Why don't my comments and uploaded profile picture remain public?  My comments about YouTube ignoring their participants and starting a new ugly design and format have not taken root on CNN iReports.

i am having difficulty seeing where to post, and have been unsuccessful so far. also, if you want syria video you have to disable your gps locator function on the site.

if you want 24/7 reporting from inside syria, use the chat on livestream syrian freedom for translated twitter, links to you tube and bambuser and much more.

I am very happy to know that there is a website for students to explore and learn from.  Almost every morning, I, as a teacher, show my students the news.  Some parents and other teachers don't like the students to know things about their world, but I think it is important to let the students know things that will eventually affect them in the years to come.

 

Go CNN STUDENT NEWS!!!!!

I am trying to post to iReport. I click on the link, post my message and heading. It shows a red asterisk for what you must fill in. It does not show an asterisk for uploading a picture/video so one must assume you don't have to post one. It also looks like one doesn't have to post an address. When I click on Upload, I get a page telling me I have to upload a picture or video. Why? I don't have a picture or video to upload. Why can't I just post my story???

A precious reward to CNN.

I'm very sad this time .I see and I hear many speeches and talks walking among people o, pavment anf in the média sets everyday.That gives to me head ache and stomach ache and causes continous cerebral and abcomilnal dolor .I can't believe myself thinking about Israel and palestine .

I was dropped suddenly in draught since 1960!I was 11 years old.I was made prisoner of darkness conplete darkness!Why!

Now I have had the major arm to break the barrier as quick as possible , to be able to invade the real luminous space.Ther is another agent that makes me searching to know : Poeple !People of the world don't understand the dep signification of this war with arab and Israel .The gate behind light and darkness is in the same time an enormous steel wall and a little one hair!For those knowing history !The thue is writen on pages.We will see .The great true I'm talking aboutis that today Israel is in fact the real best OWNER of the LAND ?between ...

I can't tell the details now ,because working in press with CNN will make many succeess all over the world.If Israel needs a helper to explain the deeper old history situation to the palestinian and guide them to live with Isrealian and not as A PEOLPLE as the ground is for the owner!So ,they should make me a great reward as I do now for CNN and try to help me praparing a real histirical document from my own experience and knowledge .

I'm waiting for you .

We will celebrate aid al fitr (eating feast)o, tuesdaynhere in Morocco!

Ramadan this year was different,since the golf countries until atlantic coast northen Africa. Gaza and Ukraine make all suffering hardly.Perhaps in Europe and America as well as.

What's going on ,exactly this time ?After Syria,Israel what is she thinking about ? She pushing America and the world in its problem ,every time since lany years ago.It's a big mastake in the international history and in the internatinal relations now . Tile has changed and if Israel can't deal as it must be ,many countries will be in bad situation , very bad situation. Many countries ignore lot of the jewich religion and the jews dreams in the world.We must try to discover what Israelians search in this politic and try to make Israel in good sense and behavior , for tha peace in all the EarthThe first who should understand are the americans;because Arabs people can make America more beautiful and right tha the jews.That's what the jews never accept to see the Arab better tha she.This is a great mistake ,this is the true,which will be installed on the modern world by future arab universities generations !It will be dangerous for jews to be the premier !It's over now !
