Faking News appreciates original editorial contributions (news reports, cartoons, photoshopped images and/or videos, which are funny and preferably satirical), although we reserve the final right to publish it with ourselves (even though we fake it, I hope you understand that we still have some editorial policies).
So if any contribution is not published, that doesn’t mean there was any problem with your contribution, rather it proves that we have got some real pathetic policies.
And yeah, we will not pay you anything for your contribution (we hope to change that in future). Pagal Patrakar, the Managing Editor of this site, is also a Pagal Parasite.
That was an upfront disclaimer, now the way to contribute:
We would encourage you to join Faking News. This way, you can have your own author page containing all the articles written by you, your Gravatar image, a brief description/quote of yours, and your blog/website address. Of course you can have a pseudonym if you prefer to hide your real identity like Pagal Patrakar.
If that sounds good to you, please join Faking News by registering here.
If you don’t want to join for some reason (say you are not sure if you are going to write more than once for us), you can still contribute. But your articles will be published under the pseudonym of Guest Patrakar (we know that’s so uncool). Don’t worry, you’d still get the credit the way you desire, but no personalized page for you.
Regardless of you becoming a member of this site, please follow the following instructions to submit your contributions:
Mail us your news reports/ cartoons/ photoshopped images/ videos at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line containing the keyword ‘submission’ and the title of the news story (we can change the title and perform some minor spelling or grammatical changes in your article, even though our own spellings and grammar suck).
If a picture has to be published along with the news item, let the picture be attached with the e-mail and clear directions should be given where the picture should appear, or we’d paste it wherever it suits us. Even if you send just plain text, we might add a picture from our own imagination, if we are not feeling particularly lazy on that day.
Same goes for any embedded video (provide us with the link to be embedded, preferably a full html code if not a youtube link); although chances are that we’d not add any video from our own imagination as it is not developed to that extent.
Important: use the same e-mail address, which you had used to become a member of Faking News, to send us your contributions.
If you are an unregistered user, let us know if you’d like your name /pseudonym and/or contact ID (email or blog link) to be published along with your contribution.
P.S. – If you don’t like your editorial work being edited by others, let alone by someone called Pagal Patrakar, you are always welcome to post your original articles on our “citizen journalism” website My Faking News. We don’t edit any stuff over there, until it’s downright horrible, obscene, or spam.
Note: Posts on “My Faking News” are also treated as submissions, and they could be reposted on main Faking News with minor changes.
