Interested in trying out your hand as a travel journalist on someone else's dime (besides your parents, that is)? Deadlines for two such opportunities are looming. Here are the details::

*STA Travel, a student and youth travel company, is looking for two interns for this summer. What is the job description: snap photos, shoot video, tweet, and blog about your experiences as you travel to 16 different countries across Europe, Asia, the South Pacific and South America in a little over three months.
Applicants must submit a one-minute video explaining why they should be picked and eight finalists will be sent to a European hotspot to do a final application video. If you don't have a camera STA will be doing "casting calls on Feb. 17 at their location in Cambridge. All applications are due midnight on Feb. 25.
All the fine print is here.

*Rough Guides and BikeHike Adventures is looking for one student to travel to Istanbul to help Terry Richardson, author of The Rough Guide to Istanbul, research a new edition of the book. Basically, you'll spend about a week researching, reviewing and updating travel info for Rough Guide book on accomodations, bars and restaurants, entertainment, shopping, tours, activities and transport. You'll also get to go on a 12-day Turkish Delight tour, biking, hiking and kayaking your way through Turkey with BikeHike Adventures.
For this one you'll need to be available June 7-28 and applications must be submitted here by March 28. Claire Currie (below) offers prospective applicants some writing tips.
