iLCP Spring/Summer Visual and Communications Internship (Unpaid Remote Work)
The International League of Conservation Photographers (iLCP) is a U.S. based non-profit organization whose mission is to support environmental and cultural conservation through ethical photography and filmmaking. Founded in 2005, our programs are built on the participation and contributions of our Fellows, an elite group of the world’s top wildlife, nature and culture photographers who, in addition to displaying remarkable photographic skills, have each demonstrated a deep commitment to conservation efforts around the globe. Our Fellowship is a dynamic, collaborative, and supportive community that aims to influence all photographers and users of imagery to adopt the best and most sustainable practices with regards to the creation and use of visual media.
iLCP is seeking candidates who have strong communications, research, and writing skills, a willingness to think independently, and a passion for conservation and storytelling. The Visuals and Communications intern will become an integral part of our small team and learn the ins and outs of working at an image-based nonprofit organization. You will have the opportunity to work with the world’s best photographers and see how to use imagery to move the needle for conservation.
The internship is approximately 18-20 hours per week, and will be remote. The dates for this internship are flexible.
