Calling all photo students! Westword is recruiting photography students for its Spring 2012 Photo Intern Program.
By "student," we do not mean "a student of life." There's no cash offered with this gig, only credits. Don't bother applying if this doesn't apply to you.
Still interested? Read on!
Interns work directly with the Art Director. They photograph slideshows on anything ranging from concerts to burlesque shows to waterskiing squirrels. They also shoot weekly assignments for our music, food, news and culture blogs.
Interns who pass muster may also be invited to attend cover shoots. In the past, stellar interns have even photographed covers and cafés for our weekly restaurant review.
It's important that our interns have people skills. Reliable transportation is a must, and we will reimburse for mileage. And sorry, but this party is B.Y.O.E.: Bring Your Own Equipment.
To apply, send a résumé and links/samples to kristin.bjornsen[at]villagevoicemedia.com no later than December 30. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Please include "Spring 2012 Photo Internship" in the subject line.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
