The Jackson Hole News&Guide, one of the nation’s top weekly newspapers, is accepting applications for its 2014 summer photojournalism internship. The internship can begin as early as mid-May and we prefer candidates with at least one prior internship and who could stay through the end of September.
The summer season is a busy time in Jackson Hole. The intern will be held to the same standards as the staff photographers and shoot a range of news, sports and features. Photo stories on the unique characters of our little mountain town are welcome and encouraged. The News&Guide has been consistently recognized for its photography and design qualities, and good images typically receive good play.
Salary for this position is $400/week plus reimbursement for mileage outside the town of Jackson. Interns must provide their own digital camera equipment and reliable transportation.
Deadline for application is February 14. We hope to have an intern selected by the end of February or early March. Please send a cover letter, a resume with references and a CD portfolio containing at least one picture story to:
