Photo Journalism

Program Fees Photo Journalism

If you are planning a career in photo journalism then VIN’s Journalism Program can help you develop your experience and your resume.  The field of journalism is an increasingly difficult one to break into, so this is a perfect opportunity for those planning a gap year or career break to gain essential experience.

VIN’s Photo Journalism project enables interns or volunteers to develop a portfolio of work in an international context. The program is conducted in Nepal in partnership with national publications, such as The Kathmandu Post, Himal Media House, Spotlight Magazine and Image Nepal.  If you are already a practicing photo journalism, volunteering will broaden your experience and show you a different way of working in journalism against the backdrop of a country still recovering from civil war and political corruption.  Working in Nepal offers you a diverse and dramatic context for reporting.

Interns can work with daily, bi weekly or monthly publications.  The opportunity not only allows you to produce professional work for a large publication but to gain an insight into how the publication is run, ensuring you gain invaluable experience as you traverse your career path.

Each internship/volunteer placement is tailored to meet the unique needs and expectations  of the individual, both when considering which publication is most suitable for you and when assessing how much support you will need throughout the placement.

VIN is a non-commercial, charitable organisation whose overriding mission is the empowerment of marginalised, rural communities in Nepal, with a particular focus on women and children.  Since 2007 we have worked with Jitpurphedi community, 12km from Kathmandu, and now look forward to initiating our work in Okhaldhunga, in the Everest Region.  By taking part in our Journalism Program you will be supporting our efforts in these communities, helping to promote our relationships with partner organisations and raising our visibility.

During your placement you will live with a Nepali host family in Kathmandu.  This will ensure you become immersed in Nepali culture and language, which will enrich your experience and indirectly inform your work.
