Oshkosh 2010 Stringer Selection NOW Underway
IMPORTANT UPDATE: We
thought we were all done... and then we got some bad news... one of
our favorite stringers of all time has come up with a
temporary medical issue that precludes his working with us
this year at Oshkosh... so we have ONE slot open for a
writer to help us document the wonders and
insanity of Oshkosh 2010... if you are interested, be sure
to let us know ASAP and we'll see if we can work something
Get your data in NOW if you want to be considered. You've seen,
for several years, what a great job our stringers, news-spies, and
helpers have done at a number of high-profile aviation
events. GREAT writers, photographers and
videographers have helped us gather information and wave the
flag for us at these shows!
Now, we're looking ahead to some big events coming up over the
next few months -- including the biggest and most exciting of them
all. We'll definitely need a few more stringers for
Oshkosh, as well as for other upcoming aero-events.
A few of our former stringers have come to work, full
and part-time, for Aero-News... others have created great
opportunities for themselves as a result of working with ANN.
But... it's time, once again, to break in a few "newbies." If
you have always wanted to see these events "from the inside," and
you can write expertly and take photos, let us know.
And if you have any previous radio or podcasting skills, all the
better. We're especially interested in people with experience in
shooting and/or producing video segments. You
might be able to join ANN and get an inside view of some of the
most exciting events in the aviation world.
If interested, please send samples of your stories and shots,
along with a little background, and tell us what your spring/summer
availability will be. You'll be working with the most energetic
team in aero-journalism, a group that goes where the stories are
and brings 'em back for readers all over planet Earth.
If you have audio or video skills, send along a clip of your
work and a list of the software and equipment that you're
comfortable working with.
We work in shifts to cover the most ground, have time to write
it all up, and to digest the work in an efficient flow.
There'll be plenty of fun to go around, as we cover hundreds of
vendors and thousands of aircraft, pilots, and builders. What's
your specialty -- ultralights, warbirds, racers, tube and rag?
Great! You don't have a specialty (just love the whole shooting
match like we do, eh?)? Great!
We have plenty of needs, and there's plenty of aircraft and
stories to go around. We will be examining a lot of your
applications, and the process is workload-dependent, so -- sooner
We also need a high-energy "gopher" for Oshkosh -- someone who
can be counted on to run the numerous errands, arrange some
meetings, and keep us up to date on whatever we may be missing! Let
us know if any of these positions interest you by sending your
specs to the email link below.
