This internship is an opportunity to learn more about the world of photo editing. Our goal isn’t to make you into a photo editor; we view this internship as a chance for you to understand what it is like to be an editor and improve your visual literacy, which can help you become a better photographer.
The paid internship runs from Jan. 7, 2019, to April 19, 2019. Applications are due Monday, Oct. 29 at 12 a.m. ET.
You will be part of NPR’s intern program, which includes 40-50 interns each semester, across different departments. There will be coordinated training and intern-focused programming throughout the semester, which includes meeting NPR radio hosts, career development and other opportunities. As an intern, you will be treated as a member of the team. Many NPR employees are former interns and they’re always willing to help current interns.
Any student (undergraduate or graduate), or person who has graduated no more than 12 months prior to the start of the internship period to which he/she is applying is eligible. Interns must be authorized to work in the United States.
We’re looking for candidates that have a strong photojournalism background. An interest in editing, or experience with video/photo editing is a nice plus. It’s also helpful if you’ve completed at least one photojournalism-focused internship prior to applying (let us know if you have!), though it’s not necessary. A portfolio, however, is required.
We also want folks who can tell us what they would like to accomplish during their time at NPR. What do you want to learn? What do you want to try? We try to shape each internship around our intern, so we rely on you to tell us what goals you have for your time with us!

VSA, the Kennedy Center’s international organization on arts and disability, will present artwork by 15 emerging young artists with disabilities, ages 18 to 25, in a traveling exhibition. Titled Detour, this year-long national tour kicks off in Washington, D.C. at the Rayburn House Office Building on September 5, 2018, and is presented through generous support from Volkswagen Group of America.
The 2018 VSA Emerging Young Artists Competition, a Jean Kennedy Smith Arts and Disability Program of the Kennedy Center, drew submissions from talented young artists with disabilities from around the U.S. This year’s theme, around which the artists were challenged to create work, was to embrace life’s detours, to seize and explore the spontaneous forays off the beaten path, to consider what’s possible, and to celebrate the marvelous and unexpected. The winners, selected from a pool of hundreds of applicants, were chosen based on the quality of their work, artistic proficiency, and enlightening or compelling interpretations of the theme.
“These young artists have embraced life’s detours. Their work makes visible what is often overlooked and challenges us to see the world from a different point of view, and through their personal lens,” said Betty Siegel, Director of VSA and Accessibility of the Kennedy Center. “We look forward to seeing the impact these 15 young artists and their work will have on invoking unity and inclusivity across the nation. We thank Volkswagen Group of America for their continued support in making this possible.”
2018 marks the 17th year of the program in which VSA’s Emerging Artists Competition challenges young artists with disabilities to demonstrate their talents and skills across visual arts genres. The winners receive a total of $60,000 in cash awards as well as national recognition via the exhibition, which will travel to museums and galleries as part of a one year national tour. As part of their award package, the winners also receive all-expense paid travel to Washington, D.C. for three days of educational events and seminars September 5-7, 2018, including a reception at the Rayburn House Office Building on September 5, 2018.
The following artists will receive an Award of Excellence in the amount of $2,000:

This group survey presents the striking crosscurrents of photographic work by thirty-nine artists with a strong connection to the Piedmont. It blends the imagery of both emerging and established photographers, and spans the 1970s to the present day. Some artists work within the genres of landscape, portraiture, and still life, while others take abstract and conceptual approaches. Themes touch on Durham and the South, immigration, cultural traditions, family history, gender, race, sexuality, music, and religion, among others. All the artists capture the immediacy and possibility of photography, while their images provide dynamic views of the world through wide-ranging methods and techniques.
The Nasher Museum is pleased to bring together this group of artists who contribute to the Piedmont’s thriving cultural community, and beyond: Ben Alper, D.L. Anderson, Bill Bamberger, Endia Beal, Diego Camposeco, Aaron Canipe, Kennedi Carter, Faith Couch, Phyllis Dooney, Tim Duffy, William Ferris, Maya Freelon, Tamika Galanis, Michael Galinksy, Alex Harris, Harrison Haynes, Titus Brooks Heagins, Colby Katz, Anna Kipervaser and On Look Films, Jeremy M.
