About the Digital Press Corps (DPC)

DPC at SHSMUN is a unique committee – documentation, rather than debate, is its primary purpose. DPC focuses on capturing the essence of the Conference using various media tools. It documents and portrays SHSMUN in a creative and fun way through photography and the delegate newspaper / blog – The Diplomat. Members of the Digital Press Corps will be responsible for producing photographs or journalistic materials while at the Conference. Please note that DPC delegates will be required to go to the DPC Training Session held on a Saturday prior to the Conference.

2018 DPC Positions

 Reporters (7-13):

  • The DPC Reporters write articles for the delegate newspaper, The Diplomat. Reporters must be knowledgeable about Model UN in order to be able to write about what took place in committee. The articles should be clear and concise enough that, if anyone were to read The Diplomat, they would get a good idea of what happened that day during the Conference without having to expend an inordinate amount of effort.

Photographers (4):

  • The DPC Photographers record the Conference through photographs. Photographers must have experience with portraiture or photojournalism, as that is the primary style of photography used throughout the Conference.

1. ) Why do you participate in Model UN?

I participate in Model UN not only because I get to take pictures which is what I enjoy doing, but I get to see the importance of leadership being an officer along with meeting strangers who I will call my friends right after I meet them.

2.) What kind of food would you be? Why?

Café au Lait Crème Brûlée. I’m like that perfect mixture of coffee and milk with a custard filling; it's almost like my personality is sweet like milk and energizing like coffee.

The whole DPC squad meeting Santa and getting Christmas cookies in November
