International Student Broadcasting Championship launches worldwide on College Radio Day
Perth-based company RAMP Media has announced the launch of the International Student Broadcasting Championship (ISBC).
This international media competition is an engaging student platform on a global level that assists students in networking, personal brand development, and – most importantly – job prospects.
ISBC was founded by leading industry and education professionals who are passionate about college broadcasting and assisting students in their transition from graduate to the media industry.
The competition will see all facets of media come together, from radio broadcasting to video and digital content creators and e-sportscasters.
“Our primary focus is helping graduates find jobs and opportunities on an international scale,” says Phillip Vinciullo, founder of ISBC. “We keep hearing from media groups and clients that there are holes in the entry-level job market. We believe ISBC can provide development, opportunities and solutions for both graduates and industry.”
ISBC’s goal is to support students and graduates during the pivotal transition from campus to industry.
“Our focus has always been talent development and the student journey,” says ISBC co-founder Annwen Burrows (pictured here with Philip Vinciullo) “The most important part of that experience is the transition to the workforce – ISBC’s goal is to support students and graduates through those pivotal times.”
ISBC’s judges are current professionals in broadcasting, podcasting, and the digital landscape, working for some of the biggest media companies in the world.
“Their diverse international media backgrounds and extensive expertise provide an industry-current evaluation process and ensures the credibility and integrity of the competition“ says ISBC co-founder Marcel Marais.
Applicants enter the competition through a custom-built website featuring easy submission, membership login, category listings and submission requirements, competition and industry tips, judges portal, advice and support.
Appropriately, World College Radio Day opens the competition submission period. It closes on November 1st.
Award winners will be announced during a live-streamed event on November 30th. Watch the launch video here.
