“Work with photographers, reporters and editors who have won some of the most prestigious awards at one of America’s best small newspapers. The Herald, located in Jasper, Ind., is seeking an intern to work from July through the end of December in 2012. Like the wood workers in the local factories, The Herald values old-fashioned craftsmanship. Our newspaper is nationally recognized for its classic display of documentary-style photography, devoting ink and newsprint to photo stories at a time when space for pictures is drying up.”

Interns are respected members of the staff, not gophers. We are looking for candidates with strong journalism skills who have an ability to generate daily and long-term story ideas. A portfolio of moment-based pictures that connect with readers is a must.
