The Pineapple Street Media Fellowship programme is now accepting applications for its fellowship for under-represented voices in podcasting.
Pineapple Street Media is a podcast production company based in Brooklyn and their shows include: Missing Richard Simmons, Heaven’s Gate, Still Processing, Women of the Hour, Stay Tuned with Preet Bharara, Never Before with Janet Mock.
The first edition Fellowship is open to all who identify as part of an under-represented group in podcasting. Areas of under-representation may include—but are not limited to—race, ethnicity, economic background, sexual orientation and disability.
The full-time, project-based, producer-in-residence position is open to those looking to transition into an audio production career. You will work on a deeply produced and reported documentary series. We will consider any level of experience, but prefer to work with someone with some sort of audio editing background.
The fellowship starts in the summer of 2018, exact dates to be determined based on your schedule and ours.
Fellows will receive a stipend of $3,000 per month. In addition to production experience, fellows have weekly mentorship meetings with Pineapple staff producers and editors. We will also help connect you with people in the industry.
Interested applicants should send his/her resume, cover letter and 1-3 work samples (audio production preferred; but does not need to be audio) to office@pineapple.fm.
Applications close on April 15, 2018.
