Mar 27 Deadline: AAJA Convention News Project internship

The Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) has designed its convention project to simulate the convergence newsroom of today. This program will provide "mojo" (mobile journalism) and other news training opportunities to college students and professionals at the 2009 AAJA National Convention, to be held Aug. 12-15, 2009 in Boston.

From the applications, 20 of the most promising students will be selected as finalists and given the opportunity for building skills and developing their portfolios. They will participate in pre-convention training that will include interactive online courses in interviewing, multimedia, ethics, and an option of visual and audio techniques. They will also be given pre-convention assignments covering issues related to the journalism industry today and/or the Asian American/Pacific Islander community. Of those students, 12 will be selected to cover convention, with travel and hotel accommodations provided.
