Fan Reporter Sought for World Archery Indoor Championships
Colorado Springs, CO – The World Archery Indoor Championships Organizing Committee is seeking an aspiring young reporter/journalist to become one of two W&W Archery Fan Reporters for the World Archery Indoor Championships and Indoor Archery World Cup in Las Vegas, Nevada February 5-12. One lucky person will join Alexia Martinez, who was one of last year's winning reporters from the World Cup series. The Organizing Commiteee seeks a journalist who will be comfortable working in front of the camera.
This opportunity, initiated by World Archery and the Organizing Committee, gives young journalists and filmmakers the opportunity of a lifetime - to gain real-world work experience in media and sports journalism, and have their work showcased on the international stage. Additionally, World Archery will select the winning reporters at the end of this season to win a trip to report from the World Cup Final in Tokyo, Japan.
The Archery Fan Reporters will create short (three to five minute) daily interviews regarding all aspects of this premier competition, both on and off the field. The stories will showcase some of the star archers during serious or fun interviews as well as back of the scene footage of the event. Reporters will videotape, edit, embed music, write scripts and arrange interviews. Stories will broadcast internationally on World Archery's WebTV platform.
Those interested may submit a three to five minute video and 300 to 500 word description communicating why they should become the next Archery Fan Reporter. Deadline submission is December 23, 2011 at midnight EST. Submissions may be emailed to email@example.com; please email for details if submission needs to be mailed.
The position is open to one individual, preferably a student, between the ages of 16 to 30. They must be comfortable operating HD video cameras, computer technology and willing to develop a daily story. The Fan Reporter is a volunteer position. Reporters must be available February 5 through 12. The Organizing Committee will provide room and board, but reporters must provide their own transportation to and from Las Vegas. Please email with any questions.
