Interested in making a career out of video and photo journalism? Westword is looking for a good student multimedia intern for spring of 2014. The position is unpaid, and candidates must be able to get college credit for their work. To apply, send a résumé and clips to kristin.bjornsen@voicemediagroup.com

Multimedia interns will work with the editors, writers, and art director at Westword to create videos to accompany print and online-only reportage; they'll be expect to create two short segments per week, as well as two longer projects over the course of a semester-long internship. They'll also need to have their own equipment and transportation, though we can provide some accessories. (We'll reimburse for mileage and other expenses incurred while on assignment.)

Knowledge of Apple Final Cut Pro X and Compressor is a must, as are excellent communication and time-management skills; knowledge of other video-editing software is a plus, but not required.

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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
