Children in Scotland’s Young Media Voices group is now open for applications.
The project aims to give a group of children and young people the chance to share stories about the things that matter most to them over Scotland’s media channels. They will have the opportunity to work with the BBC, amongst others, and can choose to make stories about whatever matters most to them, including the place they live, the ways they like to spend their time, or the problems they think need to be fixed.
They will also have the chance to share the stories of other children and young people, in their own community and beyond.
Young Media Voices is particularly geared towards children and young people who may be interested in working in media (including as a journalist, or working for a TV or radio station), providing them with useful skills and opportunities to meet new people.
The group is open to anyone aged 8 – 17 years living in Scotland (participants must still be under the age of 18 when the project ends in March 2019); they do not need to have experience of working on media projects to apply.
The deadline for applications is 5pm on Wednesday 22nd August.
