New Non-Profit Seeks Artist to Illustrate Online Educational Community

Share |

Company/Organization: NewsEase

Description:

NewsEase needs a talented artist to create original artwork to help us visualize the positive social impact NewsEase offers. Were not set on any one specific medium, or even one specific visual style. Were looking for artists who can offer their own unique point of view, their own unique style, while still conveying our overall social mission & the fun behind our idea. So long as the artwork you create is bright, beautiful, and engaging, were happy! This is your chance to use your own unique talents & artistic point of view to make a difference in the lives of children everywhere!

The artwork you create will always, always be credited to you by name! Were also happy to link to any personal websites or online portfolios you may have (so long as the portfolio doesnt show anything inappropriate for children, of course! Or, at the very least, is segmented & clearly labeled.) This is a fantastic opportunity to have your artwork seen by an incredibly wide audience of influential people not only here in Washington, DC, but all around the globe.
Legally speaking, NewsEase will need to retain all rights to reproduce your art both online & in print in perpetuity. If at all possible, wed also like to have a few originals on hand for future use.
We’re of course more than happy to work with you so that the artwork you create for us can also be used for any classes you may be taking! We want to make sure your precious time & talents are invested wisely, not just for us, but for you too! Cooperation & collaboration are immensely important to us.

Our organization is still very new & were still in the process of negotiating with investors. As such this internship will be unpaid, despite how much we would love to be able to offer you reimbursement. We are, however, hoping to develop relationships that will grow along with the company! Although we cannot at this time offer you money, we can offer you this unique opportunity to have your artwork seen by some of the worlds most influential philanthropists, investors, and media companies. We can also work with you to get college credit for the internship as well. And, of course, your artwork will help to make a difference in the lives of countless children!
