Journalism, media, fashion, entertainment and the arts are industries where unpaid internships are rife. In recognition of the need for clear guidelines on internships for job seekers and students in these fields, Interns Australia partnered with the Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance to publish the first guidelines for interns and employers.
The guidelines are designed to support everyone to understand their rights and obligations when it comes to a media, entertainment or arts internship. It’s hoped that by providing a framework of “what fair looks like”, we’ll see fewer illegal and exploitative internships and more young people finding quality opportunities that meet legal requirements.
