6 Music Challenge – win 2 weeks BBC work experience!

The 6 Music Salford Editor, Julie Cullen, is offering you the opportunity to complete a work placement with her team at MediaCityUK.

This is a brilliant chance for students to work alongside the production teams at BBC 6 Music and get the inside track on how they build a show; learn to use a live studio; get experience of the editing software; and be part of a fantastic team. As well as having experience of working in a busy environment to tight deadlines, you’ll have bags of initiative, an interest in Radio and an excellent knowledge of BBC Radio 6 Music.

To be considered for this amazing opportunity you need to do the following 2 things:

1. We need you to come up with a music based feature that could run across one of our shows. The idea must be original, creative and have a strong interactive element. It needs to be something that will drive audiences to our social media sites as well as sitting coherently within the show that you have chosen. The feature must also engage the listener and keep them listening to the show until the very end.

2. Secondly, we’d like you to tell us what key skills you think you can bring to the BBC Radio 6 Music team (max 250 words)

You need to submit your entry, in writing, to philip.morris@york.ac.uk  by midday on Friday 1st March 2013. All University of York entries will then be forwarded together to the BBC. You may not apply directly to the BBC.

The students who submit the most interesting proposals will be invited to meet the 6 Music team in Salford and pitch their idea face to face. Placements will last 2 weeks and will be based in Salford. Dates will be agreed with the successful student.

So, if you love your music and you think you have the skills needed to support one of the BBC’s busiest teams – get your ideas together now.
