If you are interested in rectifying the underrepresentation and misrepresentation of women in the media, one way to get started is by interning at the first and longest-running showcase for independent non-fiction film, P.O.V. (’point-of-view’). Produced by American Documentary, P.O.V. premieres 14-16 high-impact documentaries every year on PBS. Hailed by critics as among the most important and relevant programming on television, P.O.V. films have won every coveted television and film award, including 18 Emmys, 11 George Foster Peabody Awards, eight Alfred I. duPont-Columbia Broadcast Journalism Awards, three Academy Awards, and the Prix Italia.

For over 20 years, P.O.V. has supported stories that express perspectives that are rarely heard in the corporate media. Some of the work by and/or about women on the series include stories that:

Interning at P.O.V. is a great opportunity for young women interested in media because you will have an opportunity to work behind the scenes of a successful television series and learn how we develop campaigns and other activities to ensure that these stories are heard nationwide.

We are looking for self-motivated individuals who have excellent communication and writing skills and a keen attention to detail to assist in the areas of production/programming, research and development, community engagement and education, Web, and communications and marketing. Interested candidates are strongly encouraged to visit the P.O.V. website to learn more.

This internship is located in New York City. Interns must commit to a minimum of 10 hours per week. Internships are unpaid; academic credit can be arranged. Travel stipend available. All interns are required to attend a one-hour orientation session, date TBD.

To apply, please submit the following materials to internships@pov.org:

* résumé
* writing sample
* cover letter detailing your availability and your interest in P.O.V.

Incomplete applications will not be considered.

Deadline to Apply: September 1, 2008

    people develop likings for them. Although DJs are
    cheaper, as with everything you get what you pay for and to get a
    good one you will certainly be paying a decent sum of money to make sure your night goes with a bang.
    Mostly because they hear something cool on the radio and want to play it
    to impress their friends or even better, want
    to create their own music to put on the radio.
