Editorial, Photogtraphy and Design interns for SKI and Skiing Magazines

Posted on August 10th, 2011

Editorial Internship
We are looking for motivated and self-directed college and grad-school students to join our editorial team in Boulder, Colorado. Our 12-week internships offer budding reporters and editors a glimpse into the inner workings of vertical, niche consumer magazines that are adapting to the new digital environment. Interns will help the editorial staff produce content for our print (SKI and Skiing magazines), online (skinet.com) and digital (Skiing Interactive) properties.

Duties: Interns become an integral part of our small and close-knit family. Their duties will include but may not be limited to: fact-checking, researching, reporting, writing, proofreading and editing articles; calling in products and gear for testing; participating in staff editorial meetings; developing multimedia packages for the web and brainstorming story ideas for all properties. They’ll be involved in the process of assigning stories to contributors, and they’ll learn how the edit and art departments work together to formulate the layout and design of written and multi-media content. We try to keep the grunt work (shipping, filing, etc) to a minimum.

Qualifications: Interns should be dedicated, hard-working, conscientious, and fun-loving, with a career interest in writing and editing. Previous journalism experience—either with local publications or your student newspaper—is preferred. A passion for the sport of skiing is a definite plus. All internships are unpaid, but school credit is available. Please email resume, cover letter, and writing samples to internship@skiingmag.com. Please indicate in the subject line that you are applying for an editorial internship.

Photography Internship
Ski and Skiing Magazines are currently looking for photography interns for all of our print and digital products for Fall 2011 and Spring 2012. This 12-week-long internship is based at our editorial headquarters in Boulder, Colorado. Intern workload includes: assisting in our photo studio and on assignment, photo retouching, coordinating photography, working with our art department to build cohesive stories, invoicing, production workflow, and participating in staff meetings. Our staff is small, so interns work closely with art directors, photo editors, and editors. Interns should be dedicated, hard-working, conscientious, and fun-loving, with a career interest in photography. A very strong foundation in the Adobe Creative Suite 3, as well as previous journalism or photography experience is required. A passion for the sport of skiing helps. All internships are unpaid and must be for college credit. Email resume, cover letter, and portfolio to: internship@skiingmag.com. Please indicate in the subject line that you are applying for a photography internship.

Design Internship
Ski and Skiing Magazines are currently looking for design interns for all of our print and digital products for Fall 2010 and Spring 2011. The internship is roughly 12 weeks long in Boulder, Colorado. Duties include working directly with art directors, photo editors, and editors on the development of pages from inception to final production, designing and flowing text in a number of our department and feature pages, and other design and production-related duties. Our staff is small and interns will get an intimate knowledge of the day-to-day cycle of publishing two national magazines and various digital products. We work with the Adobe Creative Suite 3. InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator are all used on a daily basis. A high level of proficiency in InDesign is critical. A passion for the sport of skiing helps. All internships are unpaid and must be for school credit. Please email resume, cover letter, and portfolio or link to online portfolio to: internship@skiingmag.com.
