Music Nation are looking for writers, illustrators and photographers on an ongoing basis to help make an informed, inspiring, witty and opinionated collection of the voices and talents that make New Zealand such exciting places to be.
With around 300,000 visitors to our site every month, Music Nation gives writers a platform to get their voice heard, and illustrators and photographers an opportunity to showcase their work and build their portfolio.
If you’re a writer: Currently we are particularly interested in hearing from music critics based in and around Auckland and Wellington who are passionate about their local scene. Reviewing and voicing opinions on live events, albums or music DVDs, or perhaps a weekly subject column or the likes. Please drop an email [email protected], please include examples of your writing and details of what you’re most interested in writing about.
If you’re an illustrator or photographer: Please email [email protected] with the subject line ‘Contributor: illustrator’ or ‘Contributor: photographer’ and let us know your area of expertise/interest (e.g. perhaps you’re a fashion photographer, or would like to try more live music photography) – and please link us to your portfolio where possible rather than attaching large files.
Music Nation is looking for a creative and accurate writer to oversee the creation of venue profiles from around New Zealand and abroad on our website.
The successful applicants will be expected to generate profiles quickly, in an informative – but not overly-opinionated – way, ensuring that each profile provides useful information for readers looking for somewhere to eat, drink and have fun. There will also be occasional opportunities to produce full articles and attend events. Applicants should be comfortable carrying out research, and communicating with venues directly to source information and imagery where appropriate.
This is a voluntary position. We would expect our venues editors to be producing around 5-10 venue profiles of 150 words each per month.
