We Want YOU To Come Create The Amazing MTV Snapchat Discover
MTV Breaks is setting up home in Rotterdam.
Have you ever swiped through MTV’s Snapchat Discover and thought, “I could totally make that”? Well, guess what? This is your chance to do just that!
MTV Breaks is setting up home in Rotterdam, and we’re going to be handing over control of one of the biggest Snapchat accounts in the world to you guys.
On November 1st and 2nd, we’ll be running a 48-hour creative workshop at RAAF where we'll let the hottest emerging talent create an entire edition of MTV’s Snapchat, so we’re on the hunt for the perfect team to come join us there.
So, if you’re a writer, designer, illustrator or producer / editor, this could be your big break into the creative industry.
Entries for our Snapchat workshop will close on October 27th, so make sure you’ve applied before that. To find out more about each opportunity and info on how to enter, check out the details below.
If you know everything about Harry Styles’ latest haircut, and can officially call yourself a Kylie Jenner Lip Kit expert, then this might just be your perfect opportunity. You’ve got to be a fountain of celebrity knowledge, obsessed with all things pop culture and have a serious understanding of the MTV audience and tone of voice.
How To Apply:
Please write a reactive feature to a fashion, beauty or lifestyle news story that you think would be suitable for publishing on MTV’s Snapchat Discover. Keep it between 200-300 words, add a headline and make sure to include links to relevant images and gifs.
Once you’ve done that, please send your piece to email@example.com and put ‘MTV Snapchat Writer’ in the subject.
Do you love Snapchat? Are you a Photoshop King/Queen? Want to get first hand experience creating visuals for the world’s biggest Music and Entertainment brand?! We’re looking for individuals that are bursting with creative ideas and enthusiasm as well as excellent attention to detail and organisational skills. You’ll love entertainment, music, style, celebrities and the internet and be ahead of the curve on all things digital. We want to find experts in what works visually online.
In the two day workshop you will gain an understanding of how editorial, art direction, design, animation and photo editing integrate into the Snapchat environment and become an integral part of putting a Snapchat edition together.
How To Apply:
We are looking for someone with proven design skills and an eye for style, so please send us a link to your portfolio or a PDF of the 3 best examples of your work.
Motion experience is a bonus, but not required. However, if you do not have any motion experience we would like you to also submit a GIF in 1080 x 1920 pixels that sums up your favourite celebrity news story right now! There are no limits here - make it as colourful, eye-catching and MTV as you can.
Once you’ve gathered your work, please send it via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and put ‘MTV Snapchat Designer’ in the subject.
Producers / Editors:
We’re looking for an amazing, innovative video team, who’ll not only be able to shoot but also cut and edit original content to be posted on the MTV Snapchat Discover edition. You’ll need to have experience with Adobe Premiere or any similar editing program.
How To Apply:
We want to see your work, preferably a video that you’ve produced / directed AND edited, so send a link (or two) showing your best films to email@example.com and put ‘MTV Snapchat Editor’ in the subject.
