Photos submitted by subjects for Wikinews articles
If Wikinews interviews you in person, our reporter may have a camera to take some snaps. However, not all interviews are conducted in the flesh, we sometimes use online chat and phone conversations to interview subjects or get their reaction when mentioned in the news. Take a look at some of the images, and associated articles, where subjects helped arrange images.
