Fresco tells news stories through the eyes of real people around the world and gives you the power to voice your perspective through open submissions and paid assignments.
The Fresco app shows you exactly what's happening around the world through galleries that show every angle of an event—directly from people on the scene, #nofilter, as raw as it gets. Open the Highlights feed for a quick view of what's going on internationally, see more of the biggest stories through the Stories tab, or dive deeper by reading related articles.
Ready to become a citizen photojournalist? Get notified or browse the map to see paid assignments near you. Just submit a gallery in range of the assignment, and it'll be automatically visible to our 70+ news organization partners around the US. If a news organization uses your photo or video, we'll contact you to arrange payment!
Get up to date anywhere with our Apple Watch app. See what's up instantaneously, and hand off to your phone if you want to read more.

What's New in Version 2.0
We rebuilt Fresco from the ground up and it's better than ever:
• Submit photos and videos directly to Fresco
• Respond to nearby assignments posted by news outlets
• Get paid when news outlets use your work!
Plus, the core features of Fresco have gotten better:
• Highlights and Stories feed use rich galleries with multiple photos and videos
• Parallax full screen can be opened by double-tapping on any photo
• Improved Twitter and Facebook sharing
• So many performance enhancements!
The app is a great idea and could really take off.... It more time was taken on the user interface to have more features and more simplicity. Also there's a bug where posting a picture and clicking done and then cancel starts you on this endless loop and you have to manually exit the app and restart it.
Convenient way to catch up
The app is really great. It's like social media but for news. Its nice to see the main news headlines from the perspective of other people who experienced first hand instead of the media. The news itself, is however, short to the point. The app is mainly for pictures describing the events.
It is very easy to get news with this app. The picture news is great. I can get lots of information from pictures. The beautiful full-screen parallax view is great. It is good to use this app to read news after work
