SYN search for young media leaders

Staff Writer

SYN Media along with Radio EMFM in Echuca, 3WAY FM in Warrnambool, 2XX FM in Canberra, Edge Radio in Hobart and Bay FM in Byron Bay, are looking for 5 young Aussie's to lead a new national media platform from their home towns.

The successful applicants will be in the Young Media Leaders program for a year that will help them be ready to establish a local Media Hub and lead their local peers in producing regular multiplatform content.

SYN GM Tahlia Azaria (pictured) says, “The young people we're looking for may already be involved in their community and have demonstrated significant potential to be a leader. They may be already interested in media making, they may be the school captain, an outstanding musician or the next Hamish and Andy. We’re casting the net wide. Our experience shows us there are young people out there who want to lead their own media initiatives, they just haven't been given the opportunity."

"This project will give us the chance to experiment with new technologies, and we expect to see the national media conversation evolve as a result with more young people taking control of the airwaves."

"This is the kind of initiative that will have long-term flow on effects to the wider community broadcasting sector, along with commercial and public broadcasting as more young people pursue careers in the media industry."

Anyone interested in applying for the Young Media Leaders program can get more details here, but get in before December 1.

If you want to mentor these young people you can get more details here, but you only have until Wednesday November 27 to apply.
