Paid journalism internship in Thailand covering MMA

If you’re looking for an exciting, fast-paced media internship with Southeast Asia’s largest Muay Thai and MMA Camp, we’re looking for you!

We host a litany of UFC fighters including Royce Gracie, Jake Shields, Mark Hunt, and Brian Ebersole along with many other professional fighters including Paul Daley. Our YouTube channel gets a half a million hits every month and we have a host of television shows filming here on a regular basis. We are about to launch our second camp in Chiang Mai which will take the fitness world by storm (just wait until you hear about what we’ve got...). A dynamic, fun-loving team, we BRING IT every single day and have an absolute blast doing it. Couple an incredible work environment with the sun-drenched beaches, incredible Thai culture and awesome nightlife of Phuket and you’ve got the experience of a lifetime.

This is just a taste of what we have to offer...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6hlH4fWjq98
...and yes, we are THAT cool!

About the internships:
  • Editorial: To apply, you should be a graduate of a post-secondary journalism, communications or marketing program. You can put together colorful copy, news articles and web content. You’ll have access to VIPs and celebrities on a regular basis allowing you to produce incredible pieces for your portfolio. No, you don’t have to be published and no, you don’t have to have any work experience behind you. What you do need to be is driven with excellent writing skills. We can teach you the ins and outs of email campaigns, feature writing, marketing copy and the rest. Bring the attitude, and we’ll bring the experience!
  • Media Production: You are a media school graduate trained in both filming and editing. You have a natural eye for shots, a deep sense of storytelling and are passionate about creating high quality productions. Again, you don’t have to have any broadcast credits or formal work experience. We’ll teach you how to plan, produce and post-produce broadcast quality content - content that you can put on your showreel to blow potential employers AWAY! You will be working in a highly successful Youtube channel with access to VIPs and celebrities on a regular basis. Your work will be seen by millions and your creativity and personal vision will be encouraged at all times. You’ll film using Sony/Canon HDV and DSLR and edit using Final Cut Pro/Premiere Pro.
  • Photography: You are an arts graduate (or have equivalent experience) with a passion for photography who lives to capture that perfect shot. You enjoy shooting a wide variety of people and events with a particular interest in sports. You have experience shooting and editing your own work and have a keen desire to develop your studio and reportage photography portfolio. You do not need to have published photographs. Like the other interns, you’ll have access to a wide range of celebrities and VIPs with your work seen around the world!
What We Offer: We will work with you hand-in-hand to develop the skills you need to succeed in your medium of choice. Working under the direction of broadcast and magazine quality producers, you’ll learn the ins and outs of capturing material for a worldwide audience. Additionally we offer:
-private accommodation with air conditioning
-two meals per day at our Tiger Muay Thai Grill (large western & Thai menu)
-free training at our facility by the top trainers in their field (Muay Thai, BJJ, Boxing, Bootcamp, Yoga, MMA, Krabi Krabong etc)
-weekly laundry service up to 12 kgs per month
-small monthly stipend to help cover social activities
-a 40 hour workweek of varied (but fair) hours
-an excellent reference letter detailing your experience and skills upon completion
To Apply:  If you are able to provide us with a minimum commitment of three months, please email samples of your work to our Director of Communications, Natasha Horrelt, at natasha[at]tigermuaythai.com While samples do not have to be published works, they do need to exhibit the best you have to offer. Tell us exactly why YOU are the best person for this opportunity. Applicants supplying their own equipment will have an advantage.
