We are currently looking for interns to help with a project called The Other Hundred Entrepreneurs, a counterpoint to the mainstream media representation of entrepreneurship and success. This is the 2nd edition in The Other Hundred series, which to date has been featured in over 120 media outlets such as CNN, BBC, Al-Jazeera, The Guardian, Forbes, NHK and others. The first edition’s media partner was the International New York Times and events were held in Hong Kong at Pacific Place and at the Asia Society with additional events to follow in other major cities this year.
The culmination of the project will be a published photobook of 100 stories showing the infinite variety of ways in which people shape their work and run their lives. We are looking for motivated, creative and organized interns to be a part of the team.
Applicants should be able to commit between 2-3 full days per week for 2-4 months from March 2014 to June 2014. Knowledge of Adobe Illustrator is a plus but not required. All applicants must be able to work legally in Hong Kong.
As a member of the team you will:- Be involved in our worldwide open call for submissions which last year received 12,000 images from 156 countries

- Help design marketing material for potential sponsors, partners and participants

On November 20th Asia Society hosted an evening discussion of The Other Hundred in conjunction with GIFT. Following a brief introduction of the project by Chandran Nair, the floor was given to an international panel made up of acclaimed authors and The Other Hundred contributors Janice Galloway and Chika Unigwe, TIME Asia Editor Zoher Abdoolcarim, Editor Alex Lo of the SCMP and moderated by Deborah Kan of the Wall Street Journal.
The panelists shared their unique perspectives on what The Other Hundred had to say about ordinary people around the world and the way the media often fails to present their lives accurately in favor of focusing on extremes of wealth and poverty. They also shared their personal stories on those they knew that would count as members of The Other Hundred and of the changing cultures and values that have so often marginalized them.
