If you were to name the most important job in photojournalism, what would it be? Well, according to the New York Times, it’s the role of their photo director—and the job could be yours.
Last week, the New York Times posted a job listing for its photo director position, which the paper hails as “one of most important and high-profile jobs in visual journalism.” The help wanted listing lists qualifications such as leadership, high journalistic standards, a sharp eye, and strong management skills.
“[W]e’re looking for someone to lead this talented and diverse team and to become part of the visual leadership of the organization,” the listing reads. “We want to continue integrating photography and other forms of visual journalism into the fabric of our report — as closely as our words.”
If you feel like taking a long shot, you can apply for the position, here. But you’re likely to face some stiff competition for the job.
