Firebelly Design has launched a call for applicants for its fourth annual Camp Firebelly, a ten day internship for ten young designers and graduates…

The Camp, which has a focus on working with non-profit organisations, takes place at Firebelly’s Chicago studio and provides successful applicants with the chance to “come together in advancing their skills and visions into tangible social good”.

Details of the various events that took place at the 2010 camp (which included working with Rosa Loves and Reason to Give; tackling various logo, poster and brochure projects, plus studio visits to Thirst and Threadless), are here.

Camp Firebelly “aims to connect fresh talent with real nonprofits in need,” say the organisers, and give young designers a chance to develop their professional skills within a working studio.

Applications to Camp Firebelly must be made by April 29.

The 2011 camp will run from June 20-29. More details at http://campfirebelly.com/.

UPDATE: The ten day internship costs $1,250 per person, which includes food and lodging. There is a deposit to pay on application (fully refundable).
