Did you know that EPLWA is looking for college students who want to intern as League Field Reporters? It’s a great way to get practical experience that you can put on your resume. If you are a writer or a communications major who aspires to work in sports media, this opportunity maybe right for you. League Field Reporters would work one of the eight EPLWA team venues and produce written, photographic and/or video content for the league’s website. Don’t miss out on this opportunity during EPLWA’s inaugural season.
EPLWA to enlist league field reporters in covering debut season
The Evergreen Premier League (EPLWA) will debut in 2014 in eight Washington cities as local sides hit the pitch and compete in statewide elite men’s soccer action. The league is looking to build a network of field reporters to capture the action from the sidelines. Writers, photographers, videographers, bloggers, tweeters, webmasters and more are invited to connect with us so we can help you gain access to your local club’s matches.
“We want to take advantage of the excitement, immediacy and variety of social media outlets to share Evergreen Premier League news as it happens, says EPLWA Communications Director David Falk. “In return for the volunteer work of league field reporters we can offer sideline access, exposure via our websites and our partners at goalWA.net, and a chance for local reporters to enhance their resumes and drive readers to their own sites as well.”
www.EPLWA.com, www.Twitter.com/EPLWA, www.YouTube.com/EPLWA and Facebook.com/EvergreenPremierLeague will act as central distribution points for whatever volunteer reporters capture in these Washington cities: Seattle, Tacoma, Silverdale, Vancouver, Wenatchee, Yakima, Spokane and Bellingham.
“Our goal is to create factual match reports issued via the league while at the same time helping reporters to develop an impartial reporting voice,” Falk says. “We’d like to see league field reporter reports from all of our venues that capture what happened in the match.”
Anyone interested in writing, video, or photography of EPLWA clubs and matches should contact David Falk at EPLWA2014@gmail.com. Webmasters who would like to have their site(s) designated as part of the “EPLWA Network” can discuss requirements at the same email address.
“Our soccer league is a grass-roots movement, and we think a great way to capture our first year is to enlist social media participants to help us share the experiences,” says Falk.
The conclusion of the season will see league awards given out for excellence in writing, photography and video.
