HOW TO APPLY
- Email your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org, Attn: Allie Marie Smith
- Create 3 sample Instagram posts for our account. See example above and check out our Instagram feed for more inspiration. There are two parts to the post: the image itself and the text used in the caption which should include our #wmade hashtag and anything else you think is fitting such as the entire verses or quote written out. Email us the Instagram icon (image + designed text) AND the caption you would use to accompany each icon. We are looking for refreshing, inspiring and beautiful photographs. Use the designed image below as an example and template to work off of. We use Century Gothic font and place our website in the same place as often as possible. For text you can use verses or quotes. For images, since we are not publishing them, you can find images online or from other Instagram accounts that you think will be fitting for us. Again, we won’t be publishing these so I believe it’s okay to do for this purpose. You can also use original images you have access to which would probably be ideal.
