‘Storyteller In Residence’ Applications For Oceanographic Magazine Now Open


Oceanographic Magazine recently announced that applications for its Storyteller in Residence program are now open.

According to the magazine:

“The Storyteller in Residence (SiR) role is a contracted agreement between Oceanographic Magazine and one photographer / videographer for a period of up to 12 months that covers a commitment to an agreed number of expeditions and associated stories/posts created using a fund of £45,000. It is not a full-time roll as a member of staff.”


“The successful candidate must be passionate about the ocean and conservation. They should be a talented storyteller and photographer. Videography skills are welcomed.

The successful candidate will be telling ocean conservation stories for publication across Oceanographic Magazine’s various platforms, including printed magazines, the website and social media channels. There will also be a bespoke area within the SiR section on Oceanographic where all SiR content will be collated. The successful candidate should have a good understanding of the Oceanographic brand, the types of stories it tells and its values.

When on assignments, creating and capturing content for Oceanographic, the successful candidate should be ready to represent the brand.”

Established pros and up-and-coming creatives are welcome to apply, according to the magazine.

Applications are due by March 10th, 2023.
