ASPIRING REPORTERS AND PHOTOGRAPHERS INTERESTED IN CIVIC ISSUES (fellowship) by Bear Guerra

Via City Bureau:

“The City Bureau Civic Reporting Program is a paid, 11-week opportunity for emerging journalists (Reporting Fellows & Photojournalism Fellows) and mid-career reporters (Team Leaders). Fellows will work in teams with Team Leaders to produce a journalism project on a single, big-picture sociopolitical issue facing communities on Chicago’s South and West Sides. The issue will be predetermined by City Bureau editorial staff, but fellows are able to research and pitch their own projects within that big-picture topic. All participants will also spend several hours a week mentoring high school students at our community media partner.

Projects may include written stories, audio, video, illustration, photography, data visualization, text-messaging services, in-person activities, zines, events and much more. All participants are encouraged to think creatively about how to improve the news & information ecosystem around their big-picture issue.

This is a unique opportunity to develop skills in a collaborative, hands-on learning environment while forging connections in Chicago’s journalism world. City Bureau places an emphasis on racial equity and community engagement, and participants can expect to have critical conversations about the media industry through those lenses. Participants set their own personal goals for what skills and experiences they want to gain by the end of the 11 weeks. Most participants leave the program with a better understanding of the industry, improved skills and published clips (text or other types of stories) — in addition to becoming part of our City Bureau alumni network and our wider community.”

DEADLINE: May 26.
