Photo Internship

NPR seeks photography editing intern…

What makes a great photo editing intern? (Apply now for Spring 2019!)

Photo by Rachael Ketterer

This is not your standard photo internship!

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.

What you will be doing

  • Editing: You’ll be working closely with the Visuals Team’s photo editors (Nicole and Emily) on fast-paced deadlines – we’re talking anywhere from 15 minutes to publication, to short-term projects that are a week out. You’ll dig into news coverage and photo research, learning how to communicate about what makes a good image across a range of news topics, including international, national, technology, arts and more.
  • Photography: Depending on the news cycle, there may be opportunities to photograph DC-area assignments. This can mean you’d have one or two shoots in a week, or maybe just a couple shoots in a month. You’ll work closely with a radio or web reporter while out in the field, and a photo editor will go through your work and provide feedback for each assignment. There will also be a chance to work on portraiture and still lifes in our studio.
  • We also encourage each intern to create a self-directed project to work on throughout the semester. It can be an Instagram seriesvideophoto essaytext story or anything in-between. You can work independently or with another intern or reporter.

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.

Who should apply

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!

So how do I apply?

Visual Art Exhibition featuring 15 Emerging Artists with Disabilities to Tour Nationally,
September 2017-November 2019


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:


  • Coco Allred, Seattle, Washington, age 19
  • Xichao (Carol) Cao, Great Neck, New York, age 24
  • Chance DeVille, Lake Charles, Louisiana, age 23
  • Joshua Dixon, Chicago, Illinois, age 19
  • Thomas Haley, Davis, California, age 23
  • Kip Henderson, La Mirada, California, age 21
  • Kat Katz, New York, New York, age 23
  • Sarah McDaniel, Newport News, Virginia, age 25
  • Kyah Probst, St. Louis, Missouri, age 18
  • Leonafire (Alejandra Suarez), Miami, Florida, age 23
  • Oaklee Thiele, Springfield, Illinois, age 19
  • Jade Warner, Denver, Colorado, age 24

Congratualtions, Jade!
