MileSplit Indiana is Searching for Contributors

MileSplit Indiana is looking to get more action covered, more athletes recognized, and more schools and meets the coverage they deserve. We would love to cover Indiana more completely with stories, stats, coverage of meets, and stories about our sport. 

This is where you might fit in- are you good with a camera, love shooting video, messing with great stats to cover the sport, or writing articles? If any of these interest you, we would love to see if you fit with MileSplit Indiana.

It's as simple as posting a photo gallery, some videos or making a few posts on social media.

With only one site editor, the amount of meets we can be at is very limited. In a great state like Indiana, many top athletes/teams/meets may not get the coverage they truly deserve. Our goal is to cover as many meets as possible through people just like you, may that be through photos or videos of meets they attend. Maybe you're a parent who already takes photos at meets or a part-time coach who can interview athletes? 

MileSplit is looking for a regular photographers and video contributors in Indiana to help with our growth in coverage of meets across the state.

This could be a paid or volunteer position by event, during which you would be responsible for getting complete photo or race video coverage of the top cross country and track meets within the state, as well as interviews with top athletes and coaches. The contributor would be responsible for editing and uploading the photos or video content to within a 24 to 48 hour window post-event.

Regular volunteer or paid writing assignments are also potentially available for meet previews, Q&A's, meet recaps, features and other content ideas. 

The job could expand into even greater work opportunities within MileSplit depending on the person's skill set and passion to cover the sport.

MileSplit has all of the following types of contributors in the company like:

  • Parents who take video or photos at meets already
  • College students who love the sport and want to contribute for some extra money
  • High School students look for experience in the sport they love
  • Media and Newspaper photographers who already cover athletic competitions
  • Part-Time or Retired coaches still involved in the sport
  • Former athletes who just want an excuse to go cover meets!

There are plenty of perks like free entry to meets, potential pay and travel reimbursement, MileSplit swag, and lots more!
