Terms and Conditions
By checking this box, you are agreeing to the following terms:
PMJA is responsible to assign an editor to the station at its discretion and based on the availability of funding, availability of independent editors and prioritization.
PMJA and individual editors have a separate agreement outlining payments to the editor. The station has no responsibility to pay the editor.
The station is responsible for working with the PMJA editor in good faith for the hours agreed upon. If a station needs to cancel a scheduled editing shift, PMJA requires the cancellation be requested the business day prior to the shift so the editor can schedule another client. Same day cancellations will incur a charge to the station to cover 50% of the editor's pay for that day (eg. 50% of 4 hours @ $85/hr = $170) to be paid within 2 weeks of the scheduled shift.
The station is ultimately responsible for all on-air content.
PMJA has developed editorial guidelines that all editors will be using. Those guidelines are available
The station is responsible for providing credit on-air and online for content produced with an Editor Corps editor. Those guidelines are avaible
The station is reponsible for submitting links to content to PMJA within 30 days of completion.
The station agrees to this responsibility and will hold harmless PMJA and the individual editor.
I agree to the terms and conditions listed above.
All questions regarding the PMJA Editor Corps can be directed to PMJA staff by emailing
