We are a volunteer-driven organization, and we rely on those with a passion for journalism to donate their time and effort to achieve success. We are always looking for more people that believe in the mission of our foundation, and the importance of informing and educating the public.
Here are some of the ways you can help.
Whether you are a seasoned pro, a journalism student, or a citizen journalist that wants to shine a light on your community, there’s a place here for you to contribute. This may be a hobby for you, a way to give back, or you may just be starting your career, and need to build your reputation. You may be a writer, photographer, or videographer, we need all of these skills to grow our impact.
By contributing to ViewPoint Press, you are helping to spread knowledge, insight, and understanding – informing the population and being an active part of one of the most critical parts of a well functioning democracy.
While being part of such a critical function of a healthy society is rewarding alone, there are some other benefits available to our journalists:
- Building your name and reputation as a legitimate journalist.
- Photo ID press credentials (for those that have established themselves as a reliable contributor).
- Embroidered ViewPoint Press ball cap, to ease recognition as a working member of the press (as above, for reliable contributors).
- Travel cost reimbursement for high value stories (subject to pre-approval, and funding availability).
As we grow and evolve, we are always looking for ways to better enable and recognize those that are contributing to our mission.
As we grow, and produce more content, there’s a growing need for editors that can review, edit, and approve content submitted by our journalists. Volunteering as an editor is a role of great responsibility, and helps shape our coverage, priorities, and direction.
Have a passion for the visual arts and a knack for turning complex ideas or data into understandable graphics? Like most news organizations, we have need for those that can help make our reports, investigations, and research easier to understand and absorb. While a picture may be worth a thousand words, a skillfully crafted graphic can be worth far more. If you have are interested in journalism and have the right skills, this can be a great way to make the world just a little bit better.
