Publish 2 has had the bright idea of a contest for journalists, with the much-coveted and very rare prize of… a whole, brand new, job in journalism (paid, and everything)!
Entrants need to promote themselves as ‘the future of journalism’.
“We believe journalism has a bright future, and we’re betting everything on that belief,” writes Publish2 CEO and co-founder Scott Karp on the Publish2 site.
The winner of the ‘I Am The Future Of Journalism’ Contest will bag a job with Publish2, a site and application developed to promote ‘link journalism’ in newsrooms, as reported by Journalism.co.uk in October.
The new recruit will join a team of two existing journalists and included in the offer is a $1,000 signing bonus.
Unsuccessful entrants will also receive a boost, writes Karp: Publish2 will promote them to ‘news organizations and media companies that are looking for journalists who are focused on the future and who want to help journalism evolve’.
Entries can be video, slide show, or written (or all three) but must address ‘why you believe you are the future of journalism’.
“I am the future of journalism because…”
And then it’s down to the entrant. Further information here. Publish2 users will rate the contest entries.
The contest is open to submissions until December 30, and entries can be rated up until January 9.
