Photographers: Submit a photo portfolio with photos of food. No, Instagrams don’t count — our mediocre photos look better with a filter, too. 😉 Tell us a little about your experience and what camera you use.
Marketing/PR Team: Write three funny/clickable (hypothetical) tweets for Spoon. Name two student groups Spoon should partner with, and ideas about specific things we could do with them. List all the student groups you’re in. Describe how would you plan a launch party with $0, and what important logistics there are to consider.
