Publication: Intern magazine takes this hot topic onto a new level

Posted by Rob Alderson,

The debate over the creative and media industries’ use of interns has intensified over the past 12 months or so. Whether it’s interns taking former employers to court or arrogant editorials denouncing anyone complaining about the system, the discourse has become fractious and polarised (which we would argue is no good thing for anyone). Now Alec Dudson is launching a publication tackling this inflammatory issue in a practical, thought-provoking way.

“The publication’s intention are twofold,” he says. “Firstly to be a tactile showcase for the brightest intern and unpaid talent entering the creative fields as professionals. And secondly to initiate an important debate about the current culture of internships and its potential implications for the creative industries.”

Alec and his team have produced an Issue Zero newspaper to give readers an idea of the kind of content and design values they can expect (although the plan is to print as a magazine should Issue One come to fruition) and it’s a fine-looking thing with a thoughtful but not tubthumping approach; marinaded in positivity and celebrating ace young talent rather than focusing on anger and resentment.

We just hope Alec reaches his Kickstarter goal – this is a title with a timely, valuable contribution to make.
