We want to be in every running community across Mississippi. So we're opening up an opportunity for you to join our team!
Do you have a passion for track and field or cross country and being behind the lens? Mississippi MileSplit is looking for contributors to take photo/video from meets around the state to expand our coverage as much as possible. We also need writers that want write about upcoming meets, meet summaries and athletes.
It's as simple as posting a photo galleries and videos or making a few posts on social media.
With only one webmaster, it limits the number of meets I can be at on any given day. In a state like Mississippi where there are so many great meets every weekend, the goal is to cover as many meets as possible through individuals who may be able to provide photos or videos of meets they attend. Are you a parent who already takes pictures or race videos of meets? Or maybe a part-time coach who can interview and promote your athletes?
MileSplit is looking for a regular photographers and video contributors in Mississippi to help with our growth in coverage of meets across the state.
This could be a paid position by event, during which you would be responsible for getting complete photo and race video coverage of the top cross country and track meets within the state, as well as interviews with top athletes and coaches. The contributor would be responsible for editing and uploading the photos or video content to ms.milesplit.com within a 24 to 48 hour window post-event.
Regular paid writing assignments are also potentially available for meet previews, Q&A's, meet recaps, features and other content ideas.
The job could expand into even greater work opportunities within MileSplit depending on the person's skill set and passion to cover the sport.
If this is something you might be interested in or know of someone that would be good to take photos or shoot race videos/interviews for the site, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
