Love the Re-Nest Green Tours? Want to join our team and share great homes from your area? Re-Nest is putting out a special call for Green House Tour Contributors! If you've got a excellent eye for sustainable design and photography, and good scouting skills, read on!

We are specifically looking for a new contributor to do only Green Tour posts - the slideshow based posts where we take a look inside wonderful green homes, including those with sustainable design elements, materials, and decor. We also love small spaces and tiny homes.

This is a paid freelance position (2-4 House Tour posts per month) and it's great (but not required) if your other gigs plug you in to the design scene in some way.

REQUIREMENTS

  • excellent camera skills and a good eye for stellar images
  • a strong style sense
  • blog-style writing skills
  • a reliable computer
  • a reliable high speed internet connection
  • a decent (if not amazing) digital camera
  • Photoshop or Photoshop Elements
  • knowledge of how to use all these things

DEADLINE
Tuesday, February 16 (earlier is always appreciated!)

To apply, please send the following info to green@apartmenttherapy.com with "Blogger Search" as the subject, along with a sample house tour post:

  • Your name and contact information
  • How you first found Re-Nest and how long you have been reading us
  • What you do full time
  • Where you plan on finding green tours in your area and a few pitches of tours that you think you'd be able to share if hired
  • A complete sample house tour post (more info below, see sample green tour posts here and here)

Your sample house tour post should be complete and should be representative of the ones you would do for Re-Nest on an ongoing basis. It should consist of:

  • A minimum of 20 photos sized to 540 pixels wide - we look for a well rounded mix of beautiful images; long shots that establish the layout of the rooms/home as well as closeups of specific areas of interest and vignettes
  • Tour recipients basic info: name, location, size of home, length of time they have lived there
  • A short intro, approx. 3 paragraphs max
  • An Apartment Therapy Questionnaire completed by the tour recipient
  • A resource list
  • Sample green tours can be viewed here and here to see all the components of a complete post.

We want to be WOWED with your unique voice and awesome pictures! Please submit a green tour written specifically for Re-Nest and not for another blog. Look to the Re-Nest Green House Tour archives for multiple examples of the general style and format of posts for submission.

DEADLINE
Tuesday, February 16 (earlier is always appreciated!)
We will confirm your submission, and then review your submissions.
