Australian Catholics magazine has launched its media internship program for 2021, giving year 10 and 11 students across the country an exciting introduction to a career in the media. Source: Jesuit Communications.
The May 10-15 program offers secondary school students a valuable opportunity to engage with industry leaders, deepen their understanding of the media, build skills, and produce an edition of the largest circulation Catholic print publication in the country.
Successful applicants form the guest editorial team for the Spring edition of Australian Catholics and work with staff to plan, workshop and write articles for that edition.
The internship program will again be delivered predominantly online this year.
Industry leaders who have in recent times participated in the internship program to share their insights and expertise with students include Gold Walkley award-winning journalist Adele Ferguson and Associate Editor at The Australian, John Ferguson.
The internship program also connects participants with young journalists and editors who share insights about navigating the early stages of a career in the media and offers perspectives from visual media professionals who demonstrate to interns how to tell compelling stories using a range of technologies.
Applications for this year’s program close at 5pm on March 15. Students in years 10 and 11 with interests in journalism, communications, media and publishing are encouraged to apply.
