Job description

AFP is looking for a dynamic and experienced photo editor to join its Hong Kong Office.
 
ROLE
The Asia Pacific region is looking for a photo editor to be part of a dynamic team in Hong Kong which handles Asia Pacific’s photo production.

The successful candidate will select, edit, write captions and validate the diverse production to AFP clients worldwide. The editor must monitor the news, features and sport events that could be of interest to AFP and follow up with the photographers to guarantee the quality production that is AFP’s trademark. Close collaboration with the video, text, graphics and digital verification departments is essential.

The editor will have to ensure the reliability of events covered and respect for the agency's editorial policy. Applicants should expect to contribute to AFP’s social media, such as Twitter and Facebook. You will strive to ensure multimedia coordination for simultaneous delivery of video, text, photo, factcheck to clients and generally operate under AFP’s high standards of accuracy and fair reporting.

You will closely monitor social media and strictly adhere to the AFP’s ethics charter, editorial guidelines, social media guidelines, and style guide.

You will contribute to the fight against misinformation by helping factcheckers in the network and ensure you are trained in the various methods of online verification. Online training is available here. https://digitalcourses.afp.com/?utm_source=jobdescription&utm_medium=welcomtothejungle&utm_campaign=digitalverification_asia&utm_content=jobdescription

The job requires flexibility in terms of hours. Shared late shifts and weekends are part of the desk routine as it is with other editorial services.

REQUIREMENTS
You have experience in news photo editing and you are proficient with Adobe Photoshop software.

You have excellent English language skills (other foreign languages would be a plus), a strong proven interest in global affairs and are capable of working well within a team.

You have an interest in social media and participate in social networking (Facebook, Twitter, etc).  The post requires strong writing and editing skills, and an ability to produce rapid, well-edited photos in real-time deadlines. Photo shooting skills are a plus.

You must also have excellent news judgment and be equally able editing general news, economic, thematic and sports images. Experience in covering sports will be a serious advantage.

Applicants need to demonstrate an ability to work under pressure.

THE COMPANY
AFP is a leading global news agency providing fast, comprehensive and verified coverage of the events shaping our world and of the issues affecting our daily lives. Drawing from an unparalleled news gathering network across 151 countries, AFP is also a world leader in digital verification. With 2,400 staff representing 100 different nationalities, AFP covers the world in six languages, with a unique quality of multimedia storytelling spanning video, text, photos and graphics.
