Editing: You’ll be working closely with the Visuals Team’s photo editors on fast-paced deadlines – we’re talking anywhere from 15 minutes to publication, to short-term projects that are a week out. You’ll dig into news coverage and photo research, learning how to communicate about what makes a good image across a range of news topics, including international, national, technology, arts and more.

Photography: Depending on the news cycle, there may be opportunities to photograph DC-area assignments. This can mean you’d have one or two shoots in a week, or maybe just a couple shoots in a month. You’ll work closely with a radio or web reporter while out in the field, and a photo editor will go through your work and provide feedback for each assignment. There will also be a chance to work on portraiture and still lifes in our studio.

We also encourage each intern to create a self-directed project to work on throughout the semester. It can be an Instagram series, video, photo essay, text story or anything in-between. You can work independently or with another intern or reporter.

QUALIFICATIONS

EDUCATION: Must be a current student in an accredited degree program or a recent graduate of no more than 12 months from the month of the start of the internship.

Applications close on Monday, March 9, 2020 at 5pm ET.
