We're offering one IdeasTap member the paid opportunity to photograph IdeasTap-funded shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this year. (If you're a writer, visit the Edinburgh Reporter brief.)

This August, we're looking for one writer and one photographer to cover our presence at the Edinburgh festival. They will photograph a maximum of seven shows during the week beginning Monday 13 August – so please make sure you're free to be there that week.

The photographer will cover shows we have funded at Edinburgh this year – the two winners of Ideas Fund Edinburgh and the five winners of New Voices Edinburgh. Depending on schedules, at most they will photograph seven shows. This will mean working closely with the companies to get great shots of their productions. Also, if the winner chooses to take general shots around the festival, we may use them on the site – but these are an optional element of the job.

The payment is £300, plus a further £10 for each shot we use in IdeasMag and across IdeasTap (last year we used 12 shots). Please note that travel and accommodation expenses will not be reimbursed or organised by IdeasTap – we’re looking for a photographer who will already be in Edinburgh that week, regardless of this brief, and who will do this work in addition to work they are already doing at the festival.

Please note: this is not a full-time position for the week and £300+extras does not cover full-time hours.


This brief will close at 5pm on Friday 15 June and is open to IdeasTap members aged 16 and over. If you have any technical queries, please visit the help centre. Late entries will not be accepted under any circumstances, including technical issues – so make sure you don’t leave your application to the last minute.
