Content Creators Opportunity at Live Mag 2017

Are you a blogger or a journalism graduate? Live Mag’s content creators programme is looking for you.

Content makes the web go round. If this statement makes you say “halleloo!”, then chances are you have a great blog, take mean pictures and videos, or looking for opportunities to turn your passion for media and stories into a seriously professional hustle. This is where Live Mag comes in. A leading online magazine created for young people by young people, Live is looking for 12 people to train into hot, multimedia content producers.



About the programme
It’s a Monday to Friday, 9- 5 hustle with workshops on writing, photography, video production and social media tools for content creators and marketers. You’ll also be trained in writing for Search Engine Optimisation and using Google Analytics. You’ll also boost your portfolio and profile by creating content for Livity Africa platforms, including Live Mag.

Who we are looking for
Creativity is the name of the game. You are a blogger or influencer who knows how to break the internet but missing the professional skills and tools to be go-pro with your platform. Or you are a recent graduate in journalism, communications, graphic design, photography or videography or online media. If you are not a graduate, but have a body of work that demonstrates your love and passion for digital content creation like a trending blog, Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, we encourage you to apply.

What you’ll get:
  • Mentoring by leading industry professionals
  • Multimedia storytelling skills (writing, photography, videography, social media)
  • Workshops on SEO, social media and blogging
  • Career placement opportunities
