Media Organization: ROOSTERGNN Global News Network
ROOSTERGNN Global News Network is a non-profit news agency that promotes freedom of expression and journalism education.
With over 700 journalists worldwide, ROOSTERGNN publishes content in English and Spanish, and specializes in investigative, independent and digital journalism.
ROOSTERGNN Global News Network (RGNN.org), a non-profit news agency promoting freedom of expression, is recruiting university journalism contributors. The goal: to bring future journalists closer to the real-life responsibilities of a journalist at a news agency.
- Pitch a monthly calendar of content (articles, interviews, photostories, videos, etc.)
- Publish at least one piece of content (articles, interviews, photostories, videos, etc.) per month in one of the following channels:
o Gobernanza. Politics, Economy, Business.
o Innovation. Science, Technology, Education.
o Espectaculart. Art, Culture, Sports.
o Glamour. Fashion, Lifestyle, Social Media, Celebrities.
o GapBrave. Travel
- The content can be published in English or Spanish.
- Excellent writing skills required in the language you are requesting to write in.
- The articles, interviews, feature stories should always be adapted for the web and optimized for SEO.
- The articles must be accompanied by their respective visuals (images, photos, videos, infographics, etc.) for publication.
- The selected candidates must share their published content on their own social media profiles.
Regular contributors (at least one article per month) will be able to form part of a global network of journalists, with access to a private Facebook group exclusively for young journalists.
Moreover, students who publish a minimum of three articles on RGNN.org will be able to opt for a 500 Euro scholarship (http://rgnn.org/academy/scholarships) for one of our hands-on Internship Seminars in Madrid, Spain, or Cuba:
- Travel Journalism, Photography and Video Internship Seminars in Madrid, Spain (http://rgnn.org/academy/madrid-spain-travel-journalism-photography-internship-seminar/)
- Travel Journalism, Photography and Video Internship Seminars in Cuba (http://rgnn.org/academy/cuba-travel-journalism-photography-internship-seminar/)
- Digital Marketing & Social Media Internship Seminars in Madrid, Spain (http://rgnn.org/academy/madrid-spain-digital-marketing-social-media-internship-seminar/)
In addition, regular contributors will be able to request press passes and accreditations for events (e.g. fashion shows, concerts, museum exhibits, etc.) in your city or region. The type of press pass you can request will depend on the section you have been writing for (e.g. fashion related press passes for the Glamour section, politics related press passes for the Gobernanza section, etc.). The possibility of requesting press passes will be determined by our Editor in Chief and will depend on the quality of your articles (higher quality means it is more likely you will obtain passes, obviously).
