The Auction - How to Get Started

We make it easy to sell your newsworthy footage to the world. Simply upload your video or images into our secure system, and then fill out your personal details.

Auction Duration

Once the first bid is placed, the auction timer runs for 10 minutes, as footage is generally time critical to news organizations. If a bid is placed within the last minute the auction auto-extends to 1 full minute. If no bids are placed within 24 hours the auction closes. 


Once you've submitted your personal details the auction is essentially underway. You then have the option to fill in your international bank details as payment may come from overseas. When the auction closes with a winning bid, the bidder will pay you winning bid amount to your specified bank account. 



By uploading media to this website, you must ensure you're the rightful owner of that media. By auctioning the media, you (The Seller) grant an exclusive copyright licence to the Buyer for a period of 12 months on the terms and conditions set out in the media agreement.
