Ever dreamed of covering a Royal Wedding? Your Washington bosses won’t likely entertain the idea, but you may not be completely out of luck.
On April 11, CNN will name one lucky U.S.-based iReporter who will be sent to London to cover the wedding. Applicants can visit here to submit a 90-second video explaining why they should be chosen. CNN is also handing out Royal Wedding assignments. Light hearted assignments will include calls for photos or videos of a proper English breakfast, fashionably over-the-top hats and instant reaction to the bride’s wedding dress.
Then there is CNN’s iReport Open Story: Royal Wedding. This feature chooses photos and videos from iReporters and CNN journalists, and places them in an interactive timeline and map. The idea is to tell the story through those experiencing it.
