Dear AAJA Student Photographers,
AAJA offers photo students an opportunity to work in a convergence newsroom through the student convention project at the 2012 Unity Convention. This program will provide “mojo” (mobile journalism) and other news training opportunities to college students and professionals.
Professionals, if you know of a photo student interested in this, please pass this on.
Travel and hotel accommodations provided.
Deadline: Friday, March 9.
From the applications, eight of the most promising students will be selected as finalists and given the opportunity for building skills and developing their portfolios. They will be given pre-convention assignments covering issues related to the journalism industry today and/or the Asian American/Pacific Islander community.
The Unity Student Projects team will cover the latest news about journalists, the state and future of the industry, and how the newsroom changes affect the community. Their works will be featured and updated around the clock on the convention website and in a magazine-style publication to be distributed to convention attendees on the final day of convention.
