News Tips

Castanet readers are an important source of news and information. As online media, covering breaking news faster than anyone else, we deputize you, the Castanet reader, to send us your news tips, photos, and videos. If you see something happen that you think others should know about, please don't hesitate to email us at [email protected]

Aside from crediting you for your contribution, we weekly pick the best news tip and the winner receives a $25 cheque. Our judges favor entries that come in the fastest or have the most complete amount of multimedia.
