Community Media Week got under way yesterday with early morning radio interviews for De Montfort University's radio station Demon FM, writes James Black.
From there, community reporters made their way to Humberstone Gate for a series of filmed interviews below theBBC Big Screen.
Throughout the interviews, the Citizens' Eye logo and website address were displayed behind the participants on the screen.
ReporterWilliam Hall said: "It has been really good to pick up a pen and start writing again.
"So far, I have got involved with writing for Wave, the young people's newspaper, covered the Critical Mass bike ride and the Green Film Festival. It's been really great to get involved with events I am interested in."
The challenge issued by Citizens' Eye reporters is to get communities across the city and county to use the "green button" on the Citizens' Eye website to submit their stories and publish them online.
Community Media Weeks runs until June 7. For a full list of the events, visit: http://www.citizenseye.org
