Paid Internship at the NPPA Writing About Media Law

This just dropped into my inbox from the National Press Photographers Association, located just up the road in Durham:

The National Press Photographers Association is searching for a paid intern to help promote our advocacy efforts and assist with legal writing, news stories and press releases. Topics that you will write about will primarily include legal issues facing photojournalists, in particular First Amendment and copyright issues, and NPPA’s response to those issues. Some of the issues can be complex, so a willingness to learn and an ability to break down complicated issues into readable stories is critical. You may also be asked to write about non-legal issues facing photojournalists. NPPA’s two attorneys will supervise, providing legal knowledge and information but you will be expected to be able to work independently. We are willing to work with schools who will allow credit for the internship. You will be working remotely and must provide your own computer with Microsoft Word, and internet access.

Previous writing experience is required with a preference for writing about media industry or legal issues.
Copy editing experience
Ability to work 10 to 15 hours per week.
Basic understanding of the law, the media and photography industry
Ability to work independently, with and without supervision

Photography experience.
Proximity to Durham, North Carolina.
