Oshkosh 2011 Stringer Applications Now Welcome!
Get your data in NOW if
you want to be considered for what promises to be one of our most
intriguing and UNIQUE Oshkosh adventures yet (yup... BIG changes
and ideas in store for you this year). 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
inshooting and/or producing video and audio
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.
