The program is looking for fellows who fit into one or more of these categories:
Poet Marisela Norte (left) and artist Gronk surrounded by his murals in his downtown studio.
- ARTS JOURNALISTS who are committed to finding and telling stories in new ways, thinking about journalism as a dynamic system and process rather than a product, as well as those who care about finding better ways to engage with audiences.
- DESIGNERS who are committed to thinking imaginatively about information architecture, user interaction, storytelling and visualization of multi-level data with design that is intuitive, simple and fun to use.
- DEVELOPERS who are committed to imaginatively finding, adapting and integrating existing tools into Engine30 with a focus on ideas/intent behind what is developed rather than specific ways to realize them.
Other standard requirements:
- All critics, reporters, writers, columnists, editors, broadcasters or producers who specialize in arts, culture or entertainment for an online, newspaper, magazine or broadcast media organization MAY apply. Designers and developers, who preferably have some experience with journalism, are also eligible.
