Media Organization: Slate Magazine
Slate is a daily magazine on the Web. Founded in 1996, we are a general-interest publication offering analysis and commentary about politics, news, business, technology, and culture. Slate's strong editorial voice and witty take on current events have been recognized with numerous awards, including the National Magazine Award for General Excellence Online. The site is owned by The Washington Post Company.
Slate.com's New York office is still looking for talented applicants for a summer internship with the Photo and Art department. Applicants must be matriculated students, available at least 15 hours a week for 10-12 weeks starting around June 13. Candidates must be highly organized with strong visual aptitude and be able to work independently in a fast-paced environment. Interns will gain hands-on experience editing photos and selecting art for an award-winning online magazine. This is an editing — not shooting — internship, however motivated interns could have opportunities to work on special projects and publish their work. This internship is unpaid.
To apply, e-mail a cover letter that clearly outlines your availability, a résumé, and links to visual works online (no PDF or attachment files please) to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 23.
