Communication interns wanted
The opportunity to report on live sport is here!
Bowls Australia are seeking enthusiastic, dedicated and committed interns to report on events in 2015.
With four major events to be held in Queensland/Northern NSW this provides a unique opportunity to build your published work – and is ideally suited to a university student studying journalism or similarly related field, based within the region of the upcoming events.
Our flagship event, the Australian Open is moving to the Gold Coast in June 2015. With $225,000 up for grabs, a large field is expected – providing a plethora of writing material.
Major events to be covered in 2015:
June 13 – 25
Gold Coast and surrounds
Australian Indoor Championships
August 24 – 27
Tweed Heads, NSW
National Champion of Champions
September 16 – 18
Australian Premier League
November 10 – 13
Pine Rivers, Queensland
In addition to event reporting, there may be opportunity to create human interest stories outside of event periods.
An induction will be held to ensure you have a base knowledge of the technical elements of our sport, as well as outlining your role and story ideas.
Interested candidates should send through a brief email outlining why you would like to be involved, with an attached example of your work (no more than two pages). Applications to be received prior to Sunday, March 1.
