You’ll learn from the best, working alongside our photographers, video-graphers and picture desks on news and sports stories nationwide.
Three lucky recipients will receive a two-year apprenticeship with Britain’s biggest newspaper brand.
You’ll need a photographic qualification – at A level, HND or above – and a passion for news and pictures.
Royal Photographer Arthur said: “It doesn’t matter what your background is or where you went to school. It’s all about the pictures.”
He added: “As an East End kid who left school at 15, I never dreamt I would see inside the Kremlin, the White House and the Vatican.
“My life as a Press photographer has seen me visit over 100 countries and meet dignitaries from our Queen to Nelson Mandela.
“It’s the best job in the world. That’s why I’d implore any youngster with a love of still or moving images to apply for a Sun apprenticeship.”
Sun photographer Olivia West said: “I gave up teaching for life as a Fleet Street photographer 15 years ago and have never regretted it for a moment.
“Every day is different. You don’t know what’s coming. And you get to meet people, which I love.”
Sport Picture Editor Aaron Huie added: “The newsroom is rocking on big European football nights with last- minute goals flying in meaning the back page has to be redrawn with minutes to go before the first print edition.
“It’s about as fast-paced as it can get in this industry.”
