One of the places I have found for help with content is with student internships. My website is a well established entertainment website. I offer non-paid internships for students that want work experience in writing, videography and/or photography. They get experience, a by-line and proof of work for their resume. The free work pool is endless. Some other areas are art, web design, graphic arts and one guy that makes excellent videos for YouTube. It has allowed me to have "reporters" for events all over the US. They can usually get a press pass and receive free stuff. Events require proof of past articles. There are two ways I use to get the interns work up on the website. 1. They can do research on the net and write an article. 2. They can also do local events like bands, they can video tape, photograph and do CD reviews for them. The bands are thrilled and my reporter gets experience. Another area I thought of was students in game design and development. They will do anything for free tickets to a Con the goodie bags for press are impressive. They have to be 18 or over and sign an agreement that makes sure they understand that they are a volunteer, not an employee, do not get wages or expenses and they are not entitled to worker's comp if they are injured. This has worked well for me over the past 6 years and I hope it will give you some ideas.
