SYN Media’s ‘International Students on Air’ project is giving you the chance to receive free radio and media training, plus host your own gig for an entire season. Find out how you can apply.
IF you are an international student living in the City of Melbourne and are between 12 and 25 years-old, here’s your chance in a lifetime to be the host of your own dedicated weekly show on radio for an entire season.
SYN is a media organisation run by a community of young people that provides training and broadcast opportunities for young Australians.
More specifically, the organisation seeks to offer young people aged between 12 and 25 the skills and platforms to be creators, not just consumers, of media.
This year, they are extending their reach to international students, as part of the International Students on Air project, supported by the City of Melbourne. It includes:
- Training in radio and media skills (held in an intensive weekend format)
- Content development training and support
- Hosting your own weekly radio show LIVE on SYN Radio for a full SYN season
- A complimentary SYN Membership and support for a full year.
Students will need to be available for training on April 13, 20 and 27, 2014 from 11am to 4pm, and must be available for the weekly radio program on Saturday afternoons from May to July.
