Freelance video journalist

 The VJ Movement is seeking freelancers to join our global network of video journalists. We select journalists based on a demonstration of their abilities to report stories according to the profession's highest standards; their writing, production and editing skills; and their access to broadcast-quality equipment. Contributors should have at least three years of full-time experience as reporters or field producers, be excellent story-tellers, and have a proven ability to not only report but analyze issues.

Please send an email to with the subject heading "VJ application" and your location.

In your email, please include the following (in English, French or Spanish only, and as Word or PDF attachments):
  1. A cover letter explaining what country or region you would cover, whether you specialize in a particular beat or have a particular passion, and what kind of camera and audio equipment you would use.
  2. A CV or resume
  3. Web links to 2-3 samples of your video journalism work that you believe display your reporting, writing and video skills. (If you do not have links to your work, you may either upload it to You Tube and send us the link, upload it to our FTP server, or mail a DVD to: The VJ Movement, Saturnusstraat 60, Unit 62, 2516 AH Den Haag, The Netherlands.
