AFL Victoria has a number of volunteer media team opportunities on offer in season 2019 across the U18 boys, U18 girls, Hard Yakka / Totally Workwear VFL and Swisse Wellness VFL Women’s.
We are looking for communications or journalism students to assist with the coverage of these competitions via our websites (articles, photography), video production (commentary, video editing, filming, interviewing), radio (commentary, hosting, panel member) and across social media (planning and reporting). There will also be a number of club-based opportunities available in the U18 competition.
Those selected will receive hands-on experience and feedback with article writing (previews, reviews and profile pieces), a by-line for each piece produced and assistance with making connections with clubs and media at state league level.
Skills that are needed for the various media positions include:
- Good understanding of the competition you will be involved with
- The ability to promote positive stories from within the competition
- Excellent writing skills for either feature articles or match based coverage
- Knowledge of social media
- Commentary experience

If this is an area you are interested in – writing, radio, video, photography, social or commentary – please send your CV and an example of your work, such as a sports related feature/review/preview article, photo gallery or audio/video piece to:
