A great answer to major magazine asking for free "professional high resolution" photographs but they say the poor little rich company cannot pay anything for them.

This really stinks.  But it IS something I'd believe.  When suckers give their work to corporate giants who are unwilling to pay, shame on both of them.

Reputable publications like The New York Times and other new media publishers will also send out solicitations to work they see on the web.  But they also offer a competitive rate, without even needing to be asked.  All you've got to do is respond within a short time span, and they send you a check.

That's how crowdsourced content should work.
