HuffPost editors will select 24 citizen journalists to cover the Republican Convention in Tampa, Florida, August 27th to August 30th and the Democratic Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, September 3rd to September 6th. The winners — up to 12 for each convention — will get official credentials, airfare, hotel accommodation for five nights, and a basic per diem. They also will get a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see history in the making, and report on it as it happens for one of the world’s leading news sites.
All you need to do send in the explanatory video — on the YouTube platform or whatever other platform you want, or by tagging an embedded video as “OfftheBus” on Tumblr.
Attention interested Tumblr users interested in citizen journalism: If you’d like to cover the convention in person, you can get enter our contest by using the OfftheBus tag.
(And if you’re interested in applying for OfftheBus’s Senior Organizer position, drop me a line.)
