PHOTOWORKS: Freelance Editor job

Photoworks are looking for a freelance editor to edit the next issue of Photoworks Annual. Photoworks Annual is a journal on contemporary photography, published once a year.

We are seeking an experienced editor with a knowledge of, and interest in, contemporary photography with an international perspective. Experience of writing and editing content for print (ideally arts or photography-related) is essential. You will also need to have experience of working effectively to deadlines.

This is a part-time freelance position starting September 2019 until January 2020, reporting to Photoworks Director Shoair Mavlian. We offer a flat fee of £4,000 including expenses.

Photoworks is a platform for contemporary photography. We don’t have a permanent home, instead we curate photography in unexpected places – and online – and partner with museums and festivals across the world. We don’t collect, we produce, by supporting artists to make and exhibit new work. Our learning and engagement programmes break down barriers and invite everyone to participate regardless of their background or ability. We are a registered charity and much of what we do is free to access and enjoy.

You can get an impression here of our current issue of Photoworks Annual, A New Europe. Part of the role will require researching and familiarising yourself with Photoworks’ history and the projects and artists we have worked with over the past 25 years.

Although our offices are in Brighton, we invite applications from across the UK. If required, the successful candidate will be able to work remotely with regular editorial meetings by phone/Skype.

Please email anne[@] to request additional information about the opportunity. We are interested in hearing from people with a range of backgrounds and experiences, and particularly from those underrepresented in our sector.

Apply by 9am on Monday 2 September by sending a short cover letter and CV with examples of your previous work to raquel[@], with heading ‘Annual editor application’.
