Public Radio International’s America Abroad, a monthly documentary show on international affairs, is seeking a photo essay or other visual content for its website, related to its upcoming show about Mexico. To that end, we’re hoping to find a photographer or media producer to put together a photo essay or other multimedia content (video, etc.) to be featured on our website.
Here’s a working summary of the program: Mexico isn’t just another neighbor to the U.S. It’s also our third-largest trading partner, outpacing Japan, Germany and the UK combined. So what will a change in Mexico’s government mean for the United States? In the next America Abroad, we’ll go to the border to talk about the future of border security after the Fast and Furious scandal. We’ll learn about the Institutional Revolutionary Party, its history, and what some Mexicans are doing to prevent it from backsliding to an anti-democratic past. And we’ll examine corruption in Mexico’s school system, looking at a teachers’ union considered by some to be the most powerful in the world.
We’re seeking a real sense of place and detailed stories with subject names and two or three sentence descriptions of what a viewer will be seeing. Rates are negotiable dependent on experience, and we have resources in-house to do post-production on video content. The deadline for an accepted project will be Thursday, August 2nd.
Thank you for your ideas! Please email with any questions or for further details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
