Exciting Opportunity!

24 February 2015

Region: London

RPS London has teamed up with Kick It Out, the campaign for equality and diversity in football and other sports.

We’re looking for a pool of volunteer photographers who can assist with publicity photography of their events - some of which are very high profile.

Photographers at KIO events will be appropriately authorised and cleared and will be representing not only the RPS, but the Kick it Out Campaign itself. Therefore, personal high standards and a professional approach will be expected. Resultant images will be provided to KIO for use in their continued campaign.

So, if you fancy yourself as an event photographer or PR journalist and would be interested in becoming a member of a small pool of photographers, please submit three relevant images supported by 100 words expressing your interest and why you consider yourself the ideal candidate.

Please note that the KIO campaign, due to press release time constraints, will often require images very soon following an event.

RPS London hope to raise a 'team' of a dozen or so interested photographers based around London so that one can be called upon to 'cover' an event and submit the appropriate images for their use.

The first event is on the 5th March in Elephant And Castle followed by another at The Emirates Stadium on 28th April. So, if this is YOU, let's hear from you at londonevents@rps.org.

Congratulations to London RPS on this initiative, unfortunately still tremendously important to tackle racism in these settings. Regret very much that I am unable personally to commit at the moment, may be able to join in the future. Again well done and good luck in this work.

I have sent an application to the above email address: london@rps.org regarding KIO photography...however I noticed that the first event is already gone. I hope this does not prejudice my application as I only received this email today - 6th March.
Kind regards
