Want to become a Virtual Festivals journalist?
Help us cover summer 2008
18 February 2008
Virtual Festivals.com is looking for Writers and Photo Journalists to capture all the action from this
year’s music events.
With more festivals than ever before in the UK and abroad, 2008 is gearing up to be a mammoth year of music and if you’ve got what it takes you could be on the front line.
We’re on the lookout for people with talent, flair, initiative and resolve to help us cover festivals and other outdoor events this summer.
you're good enough you could gain essential experience honing your journalistic skills in the field, while simultaneously
having a great time!
Ideally, we are looking for people with experience of either music writing or photography. You’ll help review bands, interview artists, ‘snap’ the stages and ultimately contribute to our unrivalled content.
You’ll need to know your music inside out, be brimming with enthusiasm and show a sense of style that’s reflected in your work, as well as be a regular at festivals. Reckon you’re good enough?
Prove yourself by writing a review of a recent gig (200-300 words) or a detailed account of a festival you’ve attended during the last year. Keep it current by writing in the present tense and be as descriptive, informed and creative as you can.
Email in five of your best live music photos or something similar – if you haven’t take photos of bands on stage before get down to a small local gig and snap a few there. NOTE: You can only work for Virtual Festivals if you have a professional standard digital camera with lenses big enough to capture action on stage.
Submit your entries to: firstname.lastname@example.org by 15 April.
