Many of the Global Voices Lingua sites have been partnering with other media websites to exchange RSS headlines as a way to reach more readers in more languages. The recent collaboration between Global Voices in Spanish and the Spain-based Periodismo Ciudadano [es] (Citizen Journalism) has been mutually beneficial.
Recently, Periodismo Ciudadano was nominated in the 3rd annual Las Mejores Miradas [es] competition sponsored by TVE (Spanish television) in the category of “Best Internet Project.”
On their website, Periodismo Ciudadano describes itself as striving be the “reference point” for citizen journalism in the Hispanic world. The founders and collaborators of the site have been involved in various journalism, online media and telecommunications projects:
