Travel Tuesday: Apply to be a 2011 Glimpse Correspondent
Going on an interesting adventure abroad this fall? Like to take pictures and write about your travels? Then you should check out the Glimpse Correspondents Program.
Powered by Matador, and supported in part by the National Geographic Society, the Glimpse Correspondents Program provides selected writers and photographers with a $600 stipend and one-on-one editorial training and support in creating a portfolio of published work.
Anyone over 18 is eligible, and writers and photographers of all skill and experience levels are encouraged to apply. The criteria for selecting Correspondents not only include candidates’ talents in writing or photography, but also their vision for engaging communities and finding unique stories while abroad, as well as their commitment to developing these stories into polished long-form narratives over the course of the program.
Application details are here. You’ve got until June 2011 to submit your application.
