Proposal Information


The New York State Digital and Media Services Center (DMSC) is able to offer internships in the following concentrations: Studio and Event Productions, Field Productions, Photography, Post-Production, Production Planning, Copywriting & Producing, Graphic Design and Engineering.

The DMSC is a full-service solutions provider with unparalleled experience partnering with New York State agencies, authorities, and entities to meet their communications and digital needs. Simply put, we connect state agencies to the New Yorkers they serve.

The DMSC creates and distributes content that cuts through the noise and drives New Yorkers to learn more - from traditional broadcast productions and TikTok videos, to bus wraps and Waze ads. We understand the unique needs of our state agency clients, and we value the opportunity to highlight programs, services, and initiatives that make an impact on our state.

The DMSC creates and covers a wide-variety of content and events across New York State. Schedules and locations vary depending on work performed. For example: some studio and transmission operations cover evening productions; some field productions require early morning departures and/or late evening returns; digital campaigns may only require desk work at our main offices.
