Interns have the opportunity to see how marketing campaigns are developed and executed, and have the chance to plan their own college-level campaigns which often are a microcosm of the bigger domestic field marketing plan.
INTERN CANDIDATE QUALIFICATIONS
In order to qualify for an internship, an applicant must:
·Be at least 18 years of age upon start date of their internship;
·Be a legal U.S. resident;
·Be enrolled as a full time student in a college or graduate school program.
Allied will support efforts to obtain college credit. Please communicate your program’s requirements for obtaining credit with your supervisor(s) should you choose to apply for said credit. You are responsible for satisfying any requirements your school may have to obtain course credit.
Interns will have the opportunity to shadow and work with full-time publicity teams on marketing projects, gaining insight into ideation, strategy formulation and campaign execution in real-world situations. The internship program is designed to teach interns about the publicity and promotions industry from an agency perspective.
Duties may include, but are not limited to:
o Campaign Brainstorming – participating in discussion sessions to suggest publicity stunts, promotional event ideas and other elements of a potential campaign for specific film titles;
o Targeted Outreach – Working with local organizations, schools, retail outlets and other groups to fill advance screenings of new films with an audience that will spread positive word of mouth to their friends;
o Event Planning and Execution – Under the supervision of Allied publicists, interns will ideate and execute events that reach the targeted demographics for each film Allied handles. Examples include bar nights, dorm movie marathons, Greek system parties, etc.
o College Marketing – Interns are our eyes and ears in the college world. Interns work with schools in their territory to further awareness of upcoming films at the direction of Allied’s publicists.
o Screening and Event Management – Working with Allied publicists to manage various events as needed.
The goal of the Allied internship is to provide real-world education for future entertainment publicists. Therefore, interns are encouraged to approach every project with an eye towards resume building and professional development.
At the conclusion of each quarter or semester, interns will be expected to submit one portfolio piece under the supervision of Allied publicists. These portfolio pieces can consist of anything that the intern chooses (with a few exceptions, noted below). They may be prepared in any format you choose.
An example might be a film wherein the intern organized a college class lecture with a visiting filmmaker and had college newspapers cover the lecture, or pitched and planned a charity event with a school’s Greek system, themed to an upcoming film.
Exceptions – Interns must work under the close supervision of Allied staff to ensure that no sensitive or proprietary information is released. Some elements of a marketing campaign are considered confidential, including but not limited to some talent and filmmaker details, demographic strategies, anticipated strengths or challenges on any particular project, etc. Please ensure that an Allied publicist approves any element of a presentation prior to including it in your portfolio.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT TO LEARN DURING THE COURSE OF YOUR INTERNSHIP?
Allied Global Marketing is committed to making our internship program a valuable educational experience for all participants. Over the course of your internship, you will have a first-hand view of life at a marketing agency, working with publicists to learn how they go about their jobs. You will have the opportunity to learn about:
· Targeting and recruiting audiences for specific film screenings. By participating in screening recruiting, you will gain experience pitching your film to various retail, college and organizational outlets. You will learn why certain screenings might be targeted to certain types of outlets, and how to speak to those different outlets in a way that ensures their interest in getting their patrons and members to attend a screening.
· Pitching press to cover client projects. Your supervisors will discuss how they go about the business of pitching press. How do they decide which press to pitch? How do they get a reporter’s attention? In some cases, depending on client wishes and resources available for a given campaign you may even be able to pitch college press yourself. These opportunities might include reviewing a new film, interviewing an actor from the film, writing a piece about the film’s costumes or set design, or reporting on a new trailer launch. Use your imagination – what would YOU want to read about in your school paper, and develop a pitch with that in mind!
· Developing and implementing promotional events. Working with your supervisors, you will review client positioning and goals for a given project. As a college student, you’re an expert on the fun things that go on around campus – is there a way to tie a client project into those events? Does a bar night make sense? How about a movie marathon in a dorm? A costume party on Greek Row? A fashion show in the Quad? There are endless possibilities…once you decide what you want to do, now you get to make it a reality! Event conception and management are a huge part of agency work.
· Preparing reports for clients. Reporting sounds boring, but it is vitally important to our role as marketers. You will learn how reporting works for a variety of clients, and by doing so you will gain a deeper understanding of why we employ the tactics that we do to realize each project’s broader strategy. You will also gain perspective juggling deadlines for a variety of clients, which is an integral part of agency work.
· Industry research tools. You will have the opportunity to learn about tools common in the PR industry including media databases, monitoring platforms and analytic tools. You will also gain exposure to tools specific to entertainment marketing such as ticketing services and back-end reporting websites.
· Developing contacts in the market. You may meet a number of different people through your internship including press, promotional partners, agency vendors, city and regional government officials, studio staff, talent publicists and more. Use this internship as a way to develop your professional contact list – you never know when or how your paths will cross again!
You will learn to TELL A STORY. Allied’s client base consists of the best storytellers in the world, and in order to thrive at any publicity or marketing agency you must become a storyteller as well. If you decide to pursue a career in marketing, you will need to learn the art of storytelling.
When speaking with press, you are telling them your client’s story and why that is worth their coverage. No one wants to cover something that isn’t compelling to their readers or viewers.
When speaking with promotional partners, you are telling the story of how a client’s project relates to their audience. Why should they give us some of their limited airtime or print space for free?
When speaking with clients, you are telling them the story of their campaign – what are you doing to further their goals? What have you accomplished on their behalf? Are there challenges that need to be discussed?

James Alan Cox Foundation Scholarship for Student Photojournalists
Focus of work and entries: PHOTOJOURNALISM. (Please see the 2018 or previous years’ scholarship recipients to view examples of winning photographs and videos.) Scholarships will be awarded to those students whose videos or photographs “tell a story”. This is a fairly broad topic and may include a variety of subject matter and approaches (breaking news, sporting events, etc.) In terms of still photography, the five images you submit may be in the form of stand-alone images or a sequence of images. Please keep in mind that we are not looking for “art” photography. Again, we are looking for photojournalism – or “stories.” Your towns and cities are filled with them: families greeting soldiers returning from war zones, doctors and nurses saving lives, church members helping others while on mission trips, 4th of July and Memorial Day parades with veterans of wars past, fire fighters and policemen performing heroically, heart-warming rescues of family pets, a young person helping an older person cross a street, a resident returning to a home that had been severely damaged by a natural disaster. Human-interest stories told in photographs can be understood without the need for words. How does the image make you feel? Is there humor in the pictures? Is there movement? We are asking you to do a lot with this application – write an essay and send us your transcript and recommendations – so please don’t ruin your chances of being considered by submitting pictures taken of flowers, glamour shots or kittens – no matter how adorable they may be. Good luck!
Scholarship applications must be submitted between July 15, 2019 and Midnight, the Evening of November 15th, 2019.
Scholarships will be announced and awarded in early to mid-December.
