UEFA is involved in political repressions in Ukraine(open letter) [27 Sep 2011|09:28am]

Mr. Michel Platini
Union of European Football Associations
Dear Mr. Platini,
The image of UEFA and the European Football Championship which is to be held in Ukraine and Poland in 2012 may suffer irreparable blow due to the scandal developing around ProstoPrint, a popular Ukrainian printing company which applies images on souvenir products and clothes from the clients’ layout originals.  
On September 6, 2011, as a result of militia raid against the office of ProstoPrint, the company’s activity was paralyzed, the equipment was seized and criminal proceedings were taken against the employees.  They are accused of illegal application of Euro 2012 logo on the clothing.  It was revealed at once that the militiamen themselves had ordered application of such logo on 50 T-shirts so as to obtain the grounds for suspension of the company’s activity.  
When the militia arranged such provocation, they committed a number of gross outrages: search without an order, seizure of property without an order, interrogation of the suspects and examination of the witnesses with the use of physical and psychological pressure (threats of violence).    
The militiamen did not have any grounds for such measures against ProstoPrint because it is a customer, the owner of the product, who is liable for observance of incorporeal rights, but not the company which provides printing services.  This is governed both by the Ukrainian laws and by the relevant EU directives.  The employees of ProstoPrint were not even obliged to verify the customer’s right to use the logo of Euro 2012.
The real reason of the “assault” against the company with all this iniquity was not the T-shirts produced through the militia’s provocation but quite another product, very popular T-shirts among Ukrainians with inscriptions including keen criticism at President Yanukovych.  
Under the pretext of UEFA’s incorporeal right protection, the nondemocratic Ukrainian powers have unleashed the campaign of illegal persecution of its citizens for political beliefs.  In order to defend our rights and freedoms set forth in the Constitution, we will do our best to draw a wide international response to this scandal.    
It is especially outrageous that UEFA patent agents in Ukraine are directly involved in the crime against ProstoPrint as they have already written an application to prosecute the employees of the company criminally on the ground of the gross provocation committed by the militia.   
We kindly request you to interfere with this situation personally and to withdraw the application of UEFA patent agents against ProstoPrint due to absence of the formal components of a crime in the company’s actions and in that way to prevent from using UEFA as a tool for political repressions.
Oleksandr Danylyuk,
Coordinator-General of Civil movement "Spilna Sprava"

Freelance gig [17 Dec 2008|10:08pm]

Hey everyone. This is a pretty cool, very legit online writing opportunity (those rarely come along, don't they..)?

If you love your city and are passionate about a specific topic, hobby, sport, place, then Examiner.com is your place.

Quickly becoming a go-to destination for local information in 60 major markets across the country, Examiner.com is made up of a massive network of experts, insiders, and enthusiasts all over the country called Examiners. The growth of this website is INCREDIBLE. It began in April of this year and last month had 11 million visitors to the site. That's nuts.
A bit more about the gig:
• Examiners contribute a minimum of 4 short articles a week about the topic they choose to Examine in their community.
• Examiners cover everything from bike trails to civic politics to cheap eats, pets, fitness, and history.
• Examiners are often requested to appear on local and national news or contribute to magazines or other projects.
• Examiners work from home, campus, the office, the coffee shop – contributing when and where inspiration strikes.
• Examiners are paid based on traffic to their content.

If you want to apply now, you can go here!

Freelance help [18 Feb 2008|12:57pm]

Hello :)

I was wondering if any UK based types could help me out. I'm a Journalism Graduate, and although I'm not particularly interested in a Journalism career any more, I would still quite like to do a bit of writing now and then. So I was wondering whether anyone could point me in the direction of any magazines, either on-line or print, that would offer me the chance to submit the odd feature/review to them.

I'm mostly interested in music reviewing, and I'm not at all bothered whether I get paid for my writing or not, I just want to build up a bit of a portfolio in case I do head back into the Lion's Den of the Media industry!

Thanks in advance!

Tips on creating a good portfolio?

I'm planning on studying abroad in the summer, and a non-returnable portfolio is part of my application.

How many pieces should I include? Should I include actual clips from the paper, or should I print the articles in a Word Doc, and show the link/date of when it was published at the top? (I'm a little weary of sending actual clips, since it is non-returnable).
What do I even put all of this IN? A folder? A manila envelope?

Well, ironically after starting this community I'm now off to work in the world of internet journalism instead! I'll still pop in sometimes but I'm not really on LJ much. I have one person added as mod already, so I'll leave care of this comm to you! :)

Introduction [16 Feb 2007|06:28pm]

Hi all,

I'm a senior journalism student currently interning at a monthly city magazine. Most of my experience up to now has been in newspapers, but my interest in pursuing a career in magazines is growing steadily.

A quick question: What would be an average starting salary for an entry-level position at a monthly glossy (regional and/or national)?

new member intro [16 Feb 2007|04:04pm]

Just dropping in to say hi and introduce myself...I'm Erin, a Boulder, Colorado-based freelancer. I do quite a bit of business and marketing writing for a variety of clients, but have been expanding my news weekly/magazine list lately (more about my work at my website).

My goals for the year are to burst forth from the small-potatoes alt-weekly, advertorial and trade mag markets and get published in a mainstream magazine I'd actually read. Dare to dream!

In addition to writing out of my little nook in the kitchen (I've been full-time freelance for nearly a year and still no proper office in sight), I'm a roller derby queen (blocker for the Denver Roller Dolls; recovering from knee surgery and planning my big comeback).

Anyway, nice to meet all of you...it's always great to hear what other writers are up to!

Moving countries [24 Jan 2007|11:01am]

In a sudden and odd turn of events, I seem to be leaving the sunny shores of Australia for California. My new fiancé is from there and we'll be living in the South Bay where his daughter attends high school. I'll be arriving at the end of March.

Apart from the frustration I know I'm going to experience switching from the Australian Government Style Guide to AP, I figure I'm going to have a hard time figuring out my new niche. I've worked on technology magazines, digital lifestyle magazines, Choice Magazine (our equivalent of the US Consumer Reports or the UK's Which?), restaurant and city guides and travel magazines.

I've been running a couple of mini-magazines as part of my own company (and that's another story -- I have to work out whether I can remotely edit one of them or whether to resign from my own company as well as sell my share to my business partner). (You know, I just realised the hardest thing of all is going to be learning to put punctuation inside parentheses. It's just not done here unless the entire sentence is in parenthesis.)

Anyway, have any of you had experience with non-citizen colleagues? Is overseas experience considered commensurate with US experience? I'm mainly looking for full-time editing work, as I can't freelance for US companies on my tourist visa and need a company to sponsor a working visa... although I can probably write for Canadian magazines and charge that through my Australian company as if I were still in Australia and pay Australian taxes on it.

Any and all advice on the magazine industry in San Francisco/San Jose would be appreciated.

Music Magazine Writing? [25 Oct 2006|11:13pm]

Hey everyone,

My name is Michael Schmitt, I've been in music journalism for a year now writing for a few webpages. I almost had a shot at writing for RockPile magazine before it went under, and now I am focusing on trying to get into a magazine.

Does anyone have any tips on getting a writing position for a music magazine? It doesn't need to pay, money isn't an issue right now. I would just really like to move into a new medium. Any help or ideas or magazines to apply to would be much appreciated! Also, to read some of my work (to get an idea of my writing level I suppose) head here for my online portfolio. Thanks!
