Lola Kenya Screen offers internship–opportunity for the participant to acquire REAL life skills–to talented final year university students who are interested in changing the world for the better through creative entrepreneurship using the media and information discipline.
The programme is an intensive, hands-on, learn-as-you-do full time experience that runs 8-12 weeks.
Final year students of Communication, Journalism, Creative Writing, Arts Criticism, Video Production, Print Production, Graphic Design, Public Relations, Event-Organisation, Marketing, Resource-Mobilisation, Media Education, Mass Communication, and Web Development are eligible.
To be considered for placement, applicants have to send in their formal application comprising:
- Cover Letter
- Curriculum Vitae
- School Introduction/Request, and
- Samples of one’s best work (if available).
During placement, Interns are treated as regular members of staff and acquire skills while serving in the various projects–School Outreach, Mobile Cinema, Film Forum, Internship, Festival–Lola Kenya Screen runs throughout the year.
The performance of Interns is assessed by both Lola Kenya Screen and the university concerned and grades given that count towards their academic performance. Though we provide the platform upon which Interns acquire the practical skills required to graduate from university, we as Lola Kenya Screen don’t award degrees or diplomas.
While some of our former Interns work with major media organisations, others are running their own successful media and information businesses all over East Africa.
