Scoopshot Offers Cash for Brazilian Soccer Photos and Videos

Over 100 Scoopshot Users to be Paid for Capturing Soccer Spirit (June 17, 2014)

NEW YORK, June 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Scoopshot the global leader in crowdsourced, mobile photo and video content, announced that the company will issue 18 photo assignments (tasks) to honor the soccer tournament taking place in Brazil. The tasks will be available to over 535,000 global Scoopshooters from 177 countries. More than 100 Scoopshooters will earn cash for photos and videos that best capture the soccer spirit.

The first Scoopshot soccer global task, "Show us your favorite soccer team jersey!", was pushed to users on June 12. Hundreds of Scoopshooters posted photos of themselves, friends and fans sporting jerseys at home and at the games. Future tasks include "In a 15 second video show us your soccer fancy footwork," and "Photos of dogs in soccer attire!"

In addition to global tasks, Scoopshot will also create tasks for specific rivalries and countries. Scoopshooters will receive push notifications on their smartphones as new tasks become available. Scoopshooters can earn from $5 to $25 U.S. depending on the task assignment.


"The championships are all about celebrating the world's passion for soccer," said Nancy Padberg, VP Global Marketing. "Our goal is to support this global event with photo and video tasks that get Scoopshooter fans immersed in the action and show the world what it means to love this sport. Task photos and videos are available to media, marketers and bloggers to enhance their content after a private task closes, usually 3 7 days after the task launch." Scoopshot Task Photos and Videos
