The BBC is looking for young people aged between 11 and 18 who want to report on a story or issue which is important to their life or the world around them.
The BBC Young Reporter Competition gives young people like you a unique chance to tell your story on TV, radio, online or on social media with the help of BBC journalists, producers and programme makers.
It could be something that is relevant to your life, or that of your family and friends, or it could be something that affects the wider world we live in – but which your own experience or reporting of can offer a unique perspective.
- The most original and interesting stories will be put in front of a panel of presenters, reporters, senior editors and producers from programmes and platforms such as Newsbeat, Newsround, The One Show and BBC Three.
- They will choose the most unique and powerful stories – which will be made with the winning entrants and will be broadcast by the BBC on either TV, radio, online or social media platforms. There will be national and regional winners so there are plenty of opportunities for you to get your story shared!
- Young people aged between 11 and 18
- TIPS FOR ENTERING
- They are looking for powerful personal stories and ideas related to subjects not usually broadcast on the BBC. They must be true.
- The story must be original and about an issue or a personal experience or insight which has not been widely reported about before and/or reflects the life of the contributor or their friends and/or family. You should state why you think you reporting the story or issue will bring a unique perspective to it, but also how you would widen your report to look at the issues around the subject.
- Each entry will need to answer the following question: Why do you want to share your story and what would it mean to you to share your story. That’s to give us a bit of background about why you want to tell this story, what it means to you – why it is relevant to you and your life.
- Remember they don’t need the finished story, it is just the outline of it they want to hear about – so don’t worry too much about how it is written or recorded.
