The Revelstoke Mountaineer is looking for creative people to help us expand!
We launched in early 2015 with a mission to become Revelstoke’s daily online source for great things happening in our community. We are an outdoors, lifestyles, arts, people, entertainment, and news source based in journalism practices.
What we want to do is highlight the amazing people doing interesting things around Revelstoke everyday.
We are currently looking to connect with creative people interested in taking on paid contract assignments. We are looking for go-getting people with varying skill sets. This includes photographers, writers, videographers, audio interviewers, journalists, data/web producers, on-screen presenters, social media producers, and — whatever — write your own ticket.
Here’s the kind of paid assignments you’d be doing this fall and early winter:
-Interview a visiting musician like Corb Lund, Dan Mangan or Sean McCann to preview their shows at the Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre.
-Get a free seat heliskiing to produce a video/text/photo piece profiling a local lodge operation.
-Ski tour into a backcountry hot springs to produce a photo essay.
-Head out on a guided snowmobiling trip to highlight a local snowmobile guide.
-Cover the rental housing crisis in Revelstoke to share the stories of people struggling to find shelter, and seek solutions to the problem.
-Put together a web piece such as a survey or graphics-based story that highlights a community issue best explored by the numbers.
-Cover a snowboarding contest and produce a video and photo gallery.
-Write a column on something you’re passionate about.
-Get free tickets to some of the big shows at the clubs and create a scene report in whatever format you thinks works best.
-Become the Revelstoke Mountaineer’s ski column writer, covering the inside scoop on the ski scene, including who’s in town filming, how the ski team’s doing and what’s new at the shops, on piste, and in the backcountry.
-Get out to a ski flick at the Roxy Theatre and push out cell phone pictures of the lobby crowd to our Instagram and Twitter feeds.
-Get into Revelstoke Grizzlies games for free to produce reports in your format on the team’s season.
-Do an in-depth snow sports athlete profile.
-Get a press pass to big mountain ski events such as Red Bull Cold Rush or Canuck Splitfest and produce social media, photos and stories.
-Head out to community events like the Axis Mundi Festival, Timber Day or opening day at Revelstoke Mountain Resort, and tell the story however you see fit.
-Get in front of the camera for a live webcast interview at a community event.
-Conduct an audio interview and recording session with a visiting artist and push it to the Revelstoke Mountaineer Podcast.
-Produce dynamic profiles of local artists, designers and creators.
-The best story of all is the one you create out of pure passion and pitch to us!
Really, the most important thing is you’re passionate about having great experiences with new people, and telling those stories with flair in your chosen format.
