Writer

At World Of Universal, we’re always looking for ways to attract new readers, and great, informative posts are the best way to do this. Whether you’re writing a post that shares your memories, publishing content that lists your ideas, writing a post about tips, or publishing news, you’re always attracting readers to our site and helping us be the ultimate source for information. We’re looking for writers interested in sharing their moments, ideas, tips, and more related to theme parks (specifically the Universal theme parks and Disney theme parks), entertainment (such as newly released films), and other topics in travel (such as cruises).

Description: You are responsible for publishing new, informative posts to our website frequently that relate to travel destinations and entertainment. This includes covering topics in either Universal Orlando, Universal Studios Hollywood, Walt Disney World, Disneyland Resort, cruising, and films released in theaters. You are expected to publish at least one new post every two months.

Acceptable content: Your posts may discuss your opinions on a topic (such as the best rides at Universal Orlando, reviews about a new ride or movie, etc.), facts (such as hidden Mickey’s in the Disney parks or the company’s history), news (such as an announced development or a reported development), rumors (such as a rumored attraction closure), your trip experience (for example, what you did during your vacation), as well as suggestions (like tips you recommend following and developments you believe should come to fruition).

Additional information: Writers MUST fact-check all posts containing news and facts and provide sources, if necessary. All posts containing tips should contain reliable information. All posts should contain limited grammatical errors. Posts may be written in the third person (this is most suitable for fact-based, news related, and rumor-based posts) or the first person (this is most suitable for reviews and opinion-based, experience-based, and suggestion related posts). Articles are to be at least 400 words in length and written using several paragraphs that properly divide your information; your posts should not be written in one large paragraph. Each title for new entries should be designed to grab the reader’s attention, though clickbait is strongly prohibited. You may NOT use words, quotes, phrases, etc. in your posts that may be found inappropriate to some readers (this includes foul language, controversial topics, and anything related to religion and politics).

Qualifications: Applicants are to be at least 15 years of age or older. Applicants must own a device capable of accessing our system to write and submit entries. Applicants must be reliable in responding to messages and meeting the requirement of one new post every two months.

Photographer

At World Of Universal, we believe photography is a great way to keep readers and followers engaged with our site and social media accounts. Photography provides a visual of what is occurring in the theme parks, making it perfect for updates on developments as well as just showing viewers awe-inspiring sites in the parks. We’re interested in welcoming photographers to our team who will submit photos of park updates and sites in the parks.

Description: You are responsible for photographing construction as well as other updates, including minor changes, of the theme park(s) of your choice. You are also responsible for photographing scenery, structures, figures, food, merchandise, etc. at the theme park(s) of your choice. You are expected to submit new images whenever possible. Each submission should include at least six images or more.

Acceptable content: Images you submit may include construction of a new attraction, demolition of a structure, visible refurbishments in the parks, minor park updates (such as the removal of a statue or the addition of a new sign), and sites in the park (such as a photo of a ride, a capture of a meal, an image of a popular beverage, a shot of a lagoon, etc.).

Additional information: For this position, you may photograph any major theme park, including Universal Orlando, Universal Studios Hollywood, Walt Disney World, or Disneyland. You may also share your photographs from other travel destinations, such as cruise images. This position may require you to go “off track.” For example, during the construction of Universal’s Volcano Bay water theme park, for high-quality images of the development, you would have been required to take a resort shuttle to Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort. Any and all photos submitted may not contain a watermark of any kind.

Qualifications: Applicants are to be at least 15 years of age or older. Applicants must live nearby the destination they wish to cover (for example, if covering Universal Orlando, you should live within at least an hour distance). Applicants must own an annual/seasonal pass to the destination they wish to cover. Applicants must own a DSLR camera to photograph images. Applicants must be reliable in responding to messages and submitting new photographs frequently.

Additional information: For this position, you may record videos at only Universal Orlando, Universal Studios Hollywood, Walt Disney World, and Disneyland. Videographers may choose to speak in clips of park updates to explain what is occurring. This position may require you to go “off track.” For example, during the construction of Universal’s Volcano Bay water theme park, for high-quality clips of the development, you would have been required to take a resort shuttle to Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort. You are not to edit any clips submitted; videos are to be sent in their original form with no clip cuts or changes.
