Why I am recommending Media Storm:
This is an incredible website.

Stunning! Awesome!
From the Website:Photojournalist and technological innovator Brian Storm's MediaStorm is an online collaboration of multimedia storytelling from around the globe, incorporating video, audio, photography, and personal essays. For instance, world-renowned photographer Martin Schoeller shoots portraits of the most recognized people of our time, including Angelina Jolie and WashingtonPost.com and welcomes online submissions, but it's a great site for browsing, too.
