The Hollywood Reporter: Awards Editor
The Hollywood Reporter is hiring an awards editor to work closely with the editorial team to cover content related to awards season, from the creators and stars, to the crafts and politics, to the actual awards shows themselves. We are seeking an editor and writer who can generate a high volume of inspired and insightful editorial under short deadlines, and who has great relationships and can negotiate often and easily with key reps as well as awards consultants. A major component of the job is monitoring the prospects of all the awards-contender projects and players for both Oscar and Emmy seasons, and ideating, booking, assigning, editing and working with the deputy editorial director and art, photo, video, online and social departments to produce approximately 24 special awards issues a year timed to the awards calendar.
The awards editor must work creatively and quickly within the special-issues budget, in addition to producing awards content in the print weekly magazine. Additional duties include helping to book talent lounges at major festivals and awards-season roundtables, as well as strategizing and driving awards-show coverage online and in print. Working well with an award-winning team of journalists is a must for a role that generates content of high interest to our entertainment business readers, as well as a broader audience.
• At least five years-plus editorial experience
• Must be able to work in InCopy and on WordPress.
• Must be able to turn around a high volume of high-quality content quickly.
