The Victorian Multicultural Commission-Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) Internship Program supports young journalists and storytellers from culturally diverse backgrounds to gain critical experience in a highly competitive media industry and contribute to more inclusive media narratives.
Funded by the Victorian Government and coordinated by the VMC in partnership with the ABC, the paid internship program provides young people with valuable hands-on experience and on-the-job training across the state over 12 weeks, including undertaking rotations in the ABC’s metro news production, metro radio and regional teams.
VMC will offer additional support to each successful candidate with a skills audit and the establishment of career development goals, as well as supervision and mentoring opportunities.
The internship is also an important platform for young people to report on issues for culturally diverse communities, bringing lived experience, cultural context and perspective to media narratives so that they better reflect our state’s diversity.
Applications closed on Monday 12 November 2018 and are now being assessed.
