As summer comes to an end and student newsrooms fill with frantic journos trying to meet deadlines, there are two opportunities members can take advantage of before your schedules fill up with classes and work.

The first is a paid opportunity from Canadian Business Magazine. In their own words:
Canadian Business magazine is looking for photography of Canadian Universities for it’s annual Ultimate MBA Guide issue.

Specifically, we are looking for photographs of the business schools of the universities across Canada.

 

If any CUP members happen to have such photos, we would love to see if we can use them in the magazine. Photographers would be compensated and credited for any photos used in the magazine (compensation determined by how/where the photo is used.)

 

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: MONDAY AUGUST 18TH 9AM. NO LATE SUBMISSIONS. NO EXCEPTIONS.
