Seeking two photojournalism fellows
The Chicago Reporter
The Chicago Reporter seeks to fill two part-time Photography Fellowship positions (three days/week), one of which is a minority fellowship. The goal of the minority fellowship program is to encourage diversity in the newsroom and to support recent graduates from historically underrepresented groups. The fellowships are 12 months long, and begin in September.
The Reporter is an award-winning investigative magazine that has been reporting on race, poverty and income inequality in Chicago and the nation since 1972. In addition to a website, the Reporter publishes a quarterly magazine.
Photography fellows will accompany reporters on their investigations and shoot a variety of photos for print and online. Photography fellows will also produce independent photo essays, slideshows and videos; and other duties as assigned. Successful candidates will be strong visual storytellers with sound news judgment and have training in still and multimedia photography, as well as a solid understanding of editing and preparing photos for web and print distribution. Candidates must also have previous journalism experience (newspaper or magazine). Some evening or weekend work may be required. A monthly stipend of $500 will be provided.
Eligibility for the Minority Internship Position:
The Chicago Reporter is an equal opportunity employer.
Please note: Only online applications will be accepted. Deadline to apply is 5 p.m. Friday, March 27. No phone calls, please.
