iLCP Spring/Summer Visual and Communications Internship (Unpaid Remote Work)


The International League of Conservation Photographers (iLCP) is a U.S. based non-profit organization whose mission is to support environmental and cultural conservation through ethical photography and filmmaking. Founded in 2005, our programs are built on the participation and contributions of our Fellows, an elite group of the world’s top wildlife, nature and culture photographers who, in addition to displaying remarkable photographic skills, have each demonstrated a deep commitment to conservation efforts around the globe. Our Fellowship is a dynamic, collaborative, and supportive community that aims to influence all photographers and users of imagery to adopt the best and most sustainable practices with regards to the creation and use of visual media.
