Paid Fall Photo Editing Internship at TOPIC

Written by:


TOPIC is looking for a talented, motivated photo intern to assist with editing, research, and other visual responsibilities. The internship will involve background image and story research; securing licensing for archival photography, video, and audio; artist portfolio discovery and research; organizing contracts and documents; brainstorming concepts and ideas for visual storytelling; and collaborating with designers, editors, and the social media team. This is an editorial position, not a photographer position. The intern will work on a variety of projects depending on the publishing schedule and the stories assigned.

Background & Qualifications:

  • A strong visual aesthetic
  • Recent graduate or current student preferred
  • Passion for photography, art, and new media
  • Thorough researching skills
  • An interest in creative storytelling and a desire for discovery
  • Good communication skills
  • Ability to handle multiple projects within a tight deadline
  • Fluent in Photoshop
  • Knowledge of WordPress or other CMS


Topic is the ambitious new storytelling brand and entertainment studio from First Look Media, dedicated to supporting creators at the forefront of culture. From Academy Award®-winning films (Spotlight) to television, audio and digital, we explore a wide range of subject matter, both fiction and nonfiction with an emphasis on stories of consequence that explore the issues of our time. Our approach – challenging, compelling and unconventional – reflects our commitment to discovering and amplifying independent new voices, and supporting established ones.
