    Position Descriptions

    - Journalist (open to all applicants) Journalists will be asked to research and write articles independently, as well as abide by deadlines. Journalists will also be called upon to write an article for the pre-conference issue so they must be able to make time beforehand. Possible samples of work: preferably an article, though other styles of formal writing -such as essays- are acceptable as long as they are relevant. - Editor (only open to applicants with previous Press experience) Editors will help to decide upon article topics, edit work and support the journalists. This is a position of responsibility, whereby knowledge and understanding of both MUN and the UN is strongly recommended. Possible samples of work: an issue of a newspaper edited by the applicant, which must include a sample article written by the applicant. If a written article by the applicant is not included in the submitted newspaper issue, then an additional article (written by the applicant) must be provided separately - Photographer (open to all applicants) Photographers will need to work side by side with the journalists. They must be able to spot – and take – the picture that sums up an article in an artistic manner. They will be expected to work independently and to meet deadlines. Ability to work with Adobe Photoshop or Lightroom software would be an advantage. Also, they are required to have their own DSLR cameras. Possible samples of work: preferably photographs taken for a particular article, accompanied by the article itself; otherwise any relevant photography is acceptable. - Artist (open to all applicants) An exclusive position, artists will be asked to create newspaper-style artwork based on an article, preferably in a cartoon style. In doing so, they might not get much time, so the ability to work quickly, accurately and under pressure will be crucial. Ability to use Apple Mac software is useful. Possible samples of work: cartoons relevant to MUN. - Layout Artist (open to all applicants) Layout artists will have the role of digitally setting up and laying out the paper throughout the day. They must be flexible, adaptable and ultimately good under pressure. For this position you will need to be familiar with the software Adobe Indesign. Possible samples of work: a newspaper or magazine issue spread made by the applicant, accompanied by a brief summary of time constraints and the software used. -Filmmaker (open to all applicants) This is a newly added position in the press team, and entails creating a short movie summarizing the conference that will be showed at the closing ceremony on the Sunday of the conference. The filmmaker must be able to use a film camera to get good footage, and it would be preferred if he or she had their own material. Another crucial part of this position is to have skills in film editing on iMovie. Possible samples of work: self-filmed, edited clips and videos (anything of the sort), accompanied by a brief summary of time constraints and the software used.
