Sony Pictures Television Networks announced the launch of a free app to help users capture and post images of a better world. The app supports Picture This, the company’s global campaign to preserve and protect the environment.
The Picture This campaign began in September 28th, 2015 in 30 languages as an effort to bring attention to environmental issues in the networks’ footprint of 178 countries around the world including South Africa. Forty-five networks are participating, using their resources – from on-air and social media campaigns to community events – to bring attention to the issues affecting their regions, and together make a global impact.

Picture This has worked in conjunction with RAGE (Rhino Action Group Effort), a LeadSA initiative to help fight the scourge of rhino poaching in this country. In Africa, the initiative has featured on both the Sony Channel (DStv Channel 127) and Sony Max (DStv Channel 128).
The new Picture This app was developed by REDspace, known for their award-winning interactive design and development services, and is available for both iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.
“Through photo storytelling, we’re inviting everyone to capture and share images of a better place, a more sustainable community and a cleaner environment,” said Andy Kaplan, president of worldwide networks for Sony Pictures Television.
“Using our expertise to not only create revolutionary interactive experiences but also influence positive change in the world we live in? Well, it doesn’t get any better than that, says Mike Johnston, REDspace’s President & CEO. Especially when it involves working with an incredible collaborator like Sony Pictures Television, whose passion for inspiring others to work together and make a global impact is infectious.”
