The Ottawa Peace & Environment Resource Centre is seeking photographers of all skill and experience levels to join a pool of volunteers interested in photographing specific subjects and/or events. Photography Pool volunteers will be periodically contacted with specific photographic needs which they can either respond to or ignore. For example, a need might be for someone to attend an event and take photographs, or a specific subject such as recycling, a specific location in Ottawa, a type of wildlife or garden, staged photos with a theme, etc. If you already have a photo that meets the criteria of that request, that's great as well!

Photos will be used in our newspaper, the Peace & Environment News (PEN) and/or our blog and website, or social media. You will be credited as the photographer and are welcome to suggest a caption.
If there is sufficient interest, we may offer beginner photography workshops for people looking to learn and improve their skills.

You don't need to have a fancy camera for this job, but you do need to have access to something that can take photos, like a smartphone or tablet, if you don't have a camera. We'd love to be able to offer loaner devices, but it's just not feasible at this time.

The Ottawa Peace & Environment Resource Centre is seeking volunteers to join a writer's pool for occasional writing of newspaper articles for print and/or blog posts for online publishing.

This is a very flexible position. The Writer's Pool will be periodically sent requests for help with specific writing tasks or for submissions of written content on a particular topic, which they can accept or ignore as time and interest allows. Topics may fall under a broad umbrella of issues related to peace, social justice, environmental sustainability, and the intersection of these issues. Article types may include interviews (direct or over email), original work, opinion pieces, pieces requiring some research or expertise, helping community partner groups write specific material, or adapting other material to a more appropriate format - no previous knowledge or experience is required to join the pool, but may be required for specific pieces.

At PERC, we believe telling the stories other media doesn't pay attention to helps build community and connect people to causes they care about, in order to take better action for a greener and more peaceful world. We try to keep a positive outlook and focus on what can be done, rather that what we have no control over. We like to keep our minds open, but not so open our brains fall out - so the more an article is based on factual claims, the more research it might require. We're more interested in you being able to tell a good story than we are in how good your grammar is, and we're willing to work with you to improve your English writing if that is a goal you have.
