Calling all Photojournalists, Writers, Camera Ops and Editors!
LearnAsOne is a charity which funds schools in Africa.
They are looking for a photographer, journalist and camera op to help uncover and tell community stories in a very raw form, plus follow-up with the people they met on our previous trips. They also need video editors to edit footage soon after we return to the UK.
“A small number of stories and photographs need to be uploaded onto our blog and twitter while we are in Africa” said a spokes person for the charity.” You’ll also be expected to contribute stories for at least six-months after the trip to provide regular content for our supporters.”
Rawly edited video needs to follow a week or two after the trip and again continue over the next six months. Please take a look at this photo story and the work of volunteers Adam and Brenda to see the type of stories we have told so far.
These opportunities are voluntary and will need to be self-funded.
They are currently planning a 2 week trip to Zambia in November 2011 or March-May 2012. Costs will be no more than £1,500 if you are flying from the UK. There will be trips every year, so if you can’t make this time free to get in touch too.
Please send an email to the founder Steve at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
A link to your portfolio including a photo series which tells a story.
A link to articles you’ve had published. Please send me something that tells a story.
Video camera ops/editor
A link to a documentary or storytelling piece you have filmed and edited yourself. Length is not important.
If you are an editor and wish to help shape the films when we return home please get in touch too.
