There are many ways that anyone, from casual fans to official contributors, can help make Maine MileSplit better for everyone.
Come on Southern, Central & Northern Maine if you want coverage of your events we need your help.
In any given week, there are more meets to cover than there are Maine MileSplit staff members to cover them, and that is particularly true of the weekday events (all of our staff members are either students or coaches). Even at the meets we already cover, there are too many aspects of coverage for one person to possibly handle. We are currently recruiting contributors that fit the following two profiles:
If you have a camera (digital or video) and a willingness to go to meets in your area, you can become an official coverage contributor, with a chance to have your content featured in the weekend recap article or weekly meet articles. Photographers would need a decent camera body and lens to capture fast action to shoot at a semi-professional level. There is a certain quality level of photos that would justify being paid for those photos.
If you have writing skills and would write a post-meet recap which would include meet details, splits, and quotes from winners.
If either of these tickles your fancy, email the webmaster (firstname.lastname@example.org) and offer your services! All official contributors (those approved and assigned by me) will be compensated for assigned meets. I am looking for photographers & videographers all around the state that I can call on to assign a meet for coverage.
