    Here's an opportunity for sports writers/producers in D.C./MD/VA to get bylines at Washingtonpost.com and learn how to shoot/edit video. Interested candidates should send cover letter and resume to bkoub@yahoo.com

    This unpaid internship [spring/summer] focuses on video production for sports for Washingtonpost.com for packages like these:


    High Schools:



    ***NOTE: This is an unpaid internship, however, the last three internship classes with this company have resulted in three former interns growing into paid contractor/producer roles within the company and one producer being hired by the client (The Washington Post).

    Here's the Craigslist ad:

    Know the guy behind this and give a strong thumbs up if you want to learn to do things right.

    And I have a question: Will there be opportunities for the work to be used at other D.C. media outlets or is this a straight-up deal you have with the Post?

    Second what Moddy said about the dude behind the whole deal. He knows his shit when it comes to the multimedia platform. Killer internship opportunity here.

    Hi Moddy...thanks for the thumbs up. means a lot coming from you.

    Good question...the short answer is that we're expanding and adding new clients almost every week/month...

    I use the high school sports arena as a proving/training ground for interns/producers and then graduate them up to other projects/clients, which then becomes paid contract work. The moves are strictly based on feel and each producer's/intern's talents and offerings and how they can be used in each arena or for each client.

    So, no, the deal is not exclusive to The Post, but exclusive to my company...

    Sonner...thanks for the thumbs up. Keep up the good work as well.

    I'm currently in the grad program at Syracuse University and we have our capstone internship from July to mid August. I know that is a rather short time period, but I think it would be a great opportunity and I'm very interested. Should I apply? Or are you looking for someone for a longer time period?

    Thanks in advance!

    Lord. I blew a their/there and no one called me on it? You people are slipping. My stupidity aside, still a great opportunity.

    Just a reminder on this...Spring applications are due by Feb. 27. Lots of top-notch talent has already applied, but always like to pick from a large pool. Best of luck. PM me with questions.
