Application and Eligibility for The Link’s By-Election
The Link is looking for passionate journalists and artists to fill our video editor and graphics editor positions. Both editors will work alongside our Creative Director and Photo Editor to ensure The Link produces journalism with a consistent visual style.
Our by-election will run in our office at 5 p.m. on Feb. 5. Candidates will also need to attach a letter of intent and three Link contributions to the board in our office’s mainroom one week prior to the election to showcase their work, so before 5 p.m. on Jan. 29.
As we aim to prioritize a multimedia approach in the way we tell stories, The Link is looking for a skilled videographer and video editor to lead our video coverage. Whoever is voted in will run a team of contributors and decide what stories will get told through videos on our website or Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages.
Our magazine’s visual style relies heavily on the illustrations and graphic art we receive from Concordia artists. Our Graphics Editor will help in producing artwork for our magazine and articles for the web, and will also oversee a team of artists who will do the same.
Applicants who want to stay in their positions after March will need to run for re-election in the first week of March, when The Link will hold our annual general election.
