We have been running the new version of OhmyNews International for a few months now, and we’re ready for the next phase:
We are looking for volunteers who are passionate about citizen journalism to help us curate the news about the news. Ideally, OMNI works the best when we have voices from around the world participating in the larger conversation about citizen journalism.
Here are the qualifications:
- Passion for citizen journalism as a topic
- Fluent in English
- Able to use sources reliably
- Able to communicate clearly with a distinct voice
If you are interested here’s what to do.
1. Contact us with the subject “Curator,” and tell us who you are and why you are interested.
2. If approved, we will work with you in creating posts.
3. After a trial period and approval of the Board of Curators, we will ask you to join us as a full curator.
Simple as that. There is no requirement for how many times you need to post, only when you find something interesting and relevant to citizen journalism.
We look forward to hearing from you.
