  • 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.

    Video Editor

    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.

    Graphics Editor

    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.

  • Want to Represent The Link at Nash81?

    Every year, The Link takes part in the Canadian University Press’ annual national conference, also known as NASH. The conference gathers student journalists from across Canada, and Link delegates get the chance to attend workshops about the media from the pros. There’s also an awards ceremony—the JHM Awards, aka the Johnnies—that honour the best student journalism in Canada.

    And once the sun goes down there’s lots of time to party.

    This year NASH is in Calgary and takes place from Jan. 3-6. After sending off our applications for the JHM Awards, we’re now ready to pick some delegates through a democratic vote.

    The Link is sending four people to NASH this year. One of those spots is reserved for the editor-in-chief and another spot is reserved for a staff writer. The other two spots can be taken by masthead or staff writers. To be considered a staff writer, you need to have contributed to The Link at least four times this volume. If you have any questions about your eligibility, please contact Miriam at editor@thelinknewspaper.ca.

    If you’d like to nominate yourself as a Link delegate you’ll need to write a letter of intent. It should mention what you plan to do at the conference. You should also explain why we should we should select you specifically, your experience with national or regional conferences, and how you plan to contribute to The Link for the remainder of the year. You’ll also need to explain how you plan to bring your newfound knowledge back to The Link once NASH is over.

    Your letters of intent need to be printed, and posted in our office by Monday, Nov. 26 at 5 P.M. Voting for the delegates will happen before our pitch meeting the next day at 5 P.M.

    Good luck and see you in Calgary!
