Photojournalists: The Chicago Tribune is recruiting two-year residents in photojournalism. Our ideal applicant is an outstanding photographer with strong reporting skills, finely honed storytelling abilities, and a creator of images that inform, surprise and delight. The pace is demanding, and we expect creative, relevant photography under challenging circumstances. Residents get the same assignments as veteran photojournalists. The residency will concentrate on news photography, as well as features and sports, so an applicant’s portfolio should contain work of that nature, as well as photo stories and/or essays that demonstrate visual storytelling ability. Video expertise will be strongly considered when we select finalists. We look for talented, working daily newspaper journalists who have been in the business for some time and who seek the opportunity for professional growth in a large metropolitan market. Portfolios must be submitted on CDs or via websites. There is no limit on the number of photos you submit, but please be aware that we value tight editing. Because accurate, concise writing is a must, relevant caption material should accompany all work. Note: A portfolio based solely on art photography will not be considered. Interested candidates should apply to Director of Photography and Video Todd Panagopoulos email@example.com.
