DescriptionUrban Christian Culture (UCC) Magazine is an entertainment and urban lifestyle focused magazine, currently seeking to offer Digital Media internship opportunities.
Who Are We?
The magazine, which is a quarterly publication, is a platform for the advancement of independent, urban, Christian artists worldwide who are looking for a promotional outlet. We also have an online presence that is working towards helping to promote emerging artists and events. The magazine serves as a lifestyle guide for young Christians who are passionate about urban arts, lifestyle, culture and entertainment. The topics we cover are wide and varying, and include relationships, fashion, fitness, healthy eating, spiritual devotions, entertainment, events, community topics, and general interest articles, just to name a few. Our readership, which has a main audience range between ages 18-34, (35-49 secondary) represents the next generation of urban, young professionals and scholars.
UCC has a considerable and ever expanding reach in the NY metropolitan area which we have been working diligently on expanding both nationally and globally.
We are looking for both national, and international photography interns who can assist with taking photos and or videos of up and coming urban, Christian artists, events and happenings. Individuals should be passionate about photography, and have a grasp on things such as angles, lighting and depth perception. We are looking for someone with a photography background and moderate experience.
Students with coursework or previous internships in photography based fields and aspects are strongly encouraged to apply.
*Select interns will have an opportunity to become a part of our permanent staff, along with getting other perks and benefits.
We would like to end by saying: There are over 1 billion Christians in the world, and over 246 million Christians in the United States, who come in all colors and creeds. We believe "urban" is not a race or gender, but a lifestyle and culture. Therefore, diversity is key.
