Juliette informed us about this awesome opportunity that was offered to you. We'd like to do a write up on you for our weekly newsletter.
Please could you supply us with a recent photo of yourself as well as give us a brief bio (a small paragraph would be perfect, it doesn't need to be too long).
Much appreciated and congratulations!
On behalf of the www.reporter.co.za team

Subject: Rhodes conference
As discussed telephonically, Rhodes has offered to sponsor a reporter.co.za contributor to attend this conference in September.
I believe you'd be the best person to represent the cause of citizen journalism, because of your time in Korea where onmynews is so strong but, more particularly, because you have been reporting news and interviewing people of interest for our website - so you would be well-positioned to actively participate in the conference.
I'd hope it is interesting enough for you to actually report on it for reporter.co.za too.

PS Rhodes will follow up with you on the sponsorship details, but here is the info they've put up on their website.

we occasionally need a photographer for model shoots on Saturdays and
some evenings. Are you experienced in this field? Our studio is based in
