Presenters Lynette Fay and Stephen McCauley are fronting the campaign which will seek out applicants hoping to join the two presenters on BBC Northern Ireland
The campaign which runs from today until Friday 1st of June will apply to applicants between 18 and 30 years of age. You apply you will need to make a 60-second video reviewing a performance, gig or recent recording showing evidence of their musical expertise. These videos will then need to be uploaded online on to a social media or video hosting platform of choice and then the link emailed to [email protected] The email must include a link to your video, contact details and 150 words explaining why you should be selected for this opportunity.
The best 20 entries will then be invited to BBC Broadcasting House to take part in a presenting workshop with some of the applicants going on to present some digital content for BBC Northern Ireland and perhaps getting the chance to go on air in the future.
BBC Radio Ulster presenter Lynette Fay says: "The BBC has such a rich tradition of music presenters on the airwaves so this is an amazing opportunity for all those budding young presenters to get a foot through the door. The best advice I can give to any aspiring applicant is to speak from the heart, don't overthink it and be yourself. We are not looking for the best filming skills, just someone with passion who can make a connection with the viewer. Good luck to all - I will look forward to meeting up with the best 20 entrants at the presenting workshop on the 23rd June."
Entries will be judged by a panel of BBC Northern Ireland presenters and production staff. Entries will be accepted until 11.59pm on Friday 1 June, anything sent in after this date will not be considered.
