Required
What do you do? *
Describe your role. This can be a job title or prose.
Where do you work?
Including if you’re a freelancer.
Show us your work *
Send us a few links to the things you've worked on and/or to your portfolio. If there’s work you want to share that isn’t published (such as class assignments), feel free to share us a link to a document in your Google Drive. Please keep this under 500 characters.
Help us verify that you are who you say you are!
Over the last few years, the number one reason why applications take a long time to process is because our volunteer team takes time to verify that people are telling the truth about who they are. We've since revamped our process so you can help us do this faster.

👉🏼 Please do one of the following:

✅ OPTION 1
Post "Verifying myself for the Journalists of Color slack. https://journalistsofcolor.us/" in a public tweet or another public social account message and paste a direct link to that post below. If your account is private, we won't be able to see the verification post, so please pick a public account. (You can delete it after you've been accepted!)

✅ OPTION 2 (if you don't want to mention the JOC slack)
Post the words “Lift as you climb.” in a public tweet or another public social account message and paste a direct link to that post below. If your account is private, we won't be able to see the verification post, so please pick a public account.(You can delete it after you've been accepted!)

✅ OPTION 3
If you don’t have a usable social media account, upload your resume, portfolio, or CV that includes the email you're submitting in this form, to Google Drive or Dropbox and paste a shareable link to that below. Please make sure that your document's sharing permissions allow anyone to view the link, otherwise we won't be able to move your application forward!

If you need help uploading something to your Google Drive, you can find instructions here: https://support.google.com/drive/answer/2424368
Alright, once you've done one of the options above, share the link with us here: *
If you picked OPTION 1 or OPTION 2, link us directly to your public tweet or other social media post with the applicable phrase in it here. If you picked OPTION 3, link us to your Google Drive or Dropbox document below, and please make sure that your document's sharing permissions allow anyone to view the link, otherwise we won't be able to move your application forward!
