Ogden Archery World Cup Calling for Aspiring Student Journalists

The Ogden World Cup Organizing Committee is taking applications for the new FITA Archery Fan Reporter for the third leg of the 2010 Archery World Cup in Ogden, Utah, Aug. 3-7. There are two openings for the FITA Archery Fan Reporter, which is a volunteer position. The selected individuals will arrive in Ogden on Aug. 1 and depart on Aug. 8. The selected reporters also have a chance to win an all-expense paid trip to Great Britain for the World Cup Final in September.

FITA, the international archery federation, will introduce the new media position at the 2010 World Field Archery Championships in Visegrad, Hungary, July 13-18. The Archery World Cup in Ogden will be the second event where FITA will work with the reporters to develop daily stories (3-5 minutes in length) about the aspects of the major international event that will be posted on the FITA's WebTV platform. The third event where this position will be tested is at the World Cup Stage 4 in Shanghai, China. Additionally, the pool of 2010 reporters will be judged by the FITA review panel for a chance of winning an all-expense paid trip to work as the FITA Archery Fan Reporter at the 2010 World Cup Final in Edinburgh, Great Britain, Sept. 18-19.

The two FITA Archery Fan Reporter positions are open to individuals who are between 18-22 years of age. The selected reporters must be comfortable with HD video cameras, computer technology and developing a daily story. The Ogden Organizing Committee will select two individuals who have experience in: videotaping and editing; embedding music beds; writing scripts; arranging interviews; and other general reporting skills. Room and board will be provided for the selected reporters, who will have to provide their own transportation to Ogden.

To be considered for the FITA Archery Fan Reporter please submit: 1) cover letter expressing your interest in this opportunity; 2) current resume; 3) work samples. Deadline for submission is Tuesday, July 20. Send all materials to:

 For the first time in history, the United States will host an Archery World Cup stage. Utah will welcome elite archers from over 35 countries. The pivotal third stage will be contested at Weber State University with the finals held at the picturesque Lindquist Field in Ogden, the same competition venues as the 2009 World Archery Youth Championships. Ogden will also host the Archery World Cup in 2011 and 2012.

The Archery World Cup, which started in 2006, has been a popular event for athletes, sponsors, media and fans. The FITA-sanctioned event allows organizers to select unique competition venues, which included hosting the finals by shooting over a canal at the 2009 Archery World Cup in Denmark, and competing from a floating platform at the 2006 World Cup in Dubai.

The 2010 Archery World Cup in Ogden is made possible by partnerships between the International Archery Federation (FITA), Easton Foundations, USA Archery, the Ogden Weber Convention and Visitors Bureau and Utah Sports Commission.

Sponsors of the 2010 Archery World Cup Stage 3 include: Hoyt, Intermountain McKay-Dee Sports Medicine, Weber State University, GOAL Foundation, Easton Technical Products, Doinker, and Roosters Brewing Company, Arizona Archery Enterprises.
