Vice-Cencom Fellowship Program

Center for Communication

VICE Media and the Center for Communication are launching a fellowship program, open to students across the country, that will place two journalism students from underrepresented communities at VICE in the Summer of 2016.

Participants in the program will intern at VICE for eight weeks during the summer and will also have opportunities to engage with other media organizations, arranged by the Center for Communication. The fellowship will cover travel, housing, and offer a $5,000 stipend for the fellows.

While at VICE, fellows will receive individual instruction and guidance from award‐ winning journalists, producers, and editors. Fellows will also have access to VICE’s state of the art edit suites, production studios and will be encouraged to create and present their own work for review at the end of the program. The Center will also organize three On Location events for the fellows to serve as an introduction to the NYC media landscape.

This fellowship is part of a series of initiatives designed to advance both organizations’ commitment to diversifying the media landscape and ensure greater access to careers in journalism for the next generation of innovative storytellers.

REQUIREMENTS FOR FELLOWS:

  • Junior, Senior or graduate student
  • Must be a full‐time student who will not graduate prior to April 15, 2016
  • Demonstrated interest in journalism

A brand new resource was launched on October 19th, Wordrates.com. WordRates is a publishing platform for journalists to share payment structures, rate editors, and sell pitches. The project was launched on Kickstarter in April 2015 and by May 24,2015 the project reached its goal. They raised almost $10,000. Writer Scott Carney founded the site to bring transparency to the Byzantine world of magazine publishing.

According to Galleycat:

The site contains a database of magazines, blogs and newspapers that work with freelance writers. The entries for these publications include crowd-sourced ratings and comments from writers on the publication, as well as ratings of individual editors. In addition, if you sign up for the free membership, you can access publication details like pay rates, kill fees and advertising rates, along with masthead information. If you sign up for a premium account ($35 for six months, $50 a year), then you can access contact details for individual editors. You can also browse the site by best rated (Wired, Outside, Fast Company) or lowest rated (Details, Town & Country, Allure) or newest/oldest.

One special feature is the Pitchlab. On the site it explains that Pitchlab is where “Writers with great ideas can submit pitches, which are then reviewed by our team of mentors. If the idea passes the review process, the mentor will then work with the writer to hone the proposal into a perfect pitch and then take it out to the marketplace to find an appropriate publication, just like a literary agent does in the book publishing world.”

The site has been described as “Yelp for journalists.”
