CNN is calling on Amateur Photographer (AP) readers to help its coverage of Halloween.

The TV news channel is seeking still images and video of photographers’ Halloween celebrations.

The channel says the best submissions will be included in a photo gallery, published on social networking websites, and shown as part of its TV broadcasts in the UK and the US.

A CNN spokesman told AP: ‘This is a fantastic opportunity for photographers and photo enthusiasts to potentially have their work shown as part of coverage on a major news network.’

Subjects could range from the whole family dressed in matching costumes, to their home transformed into a ‘haunted mansion’.

Asked what rights contributors have over their pictures, once submitted to the project, the CNN spokesman replied: ‘Contributors retain rights to any photographs used, across all CNN platforms and will be individually credited alongside their pictures.’

    CNN can go screw themselves. Based on their recent blunders in reporting, there is no way that I would even want to be associated with these people.
