Global Search For New Talent To Join The BBC Earth Presenting Team from BBC
7 June 2018
BBC Earth has today (7/6/18) launched a global search for a fresh new presenter who can offer a different perspective on all things natural history and science, to join the team to film a four-part YouTube series.
From today, budding science storytellers can film and upload a short video to either YouTube, Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, that shows off their unique and creative approach to educational communication, and be in the running to win the opportunity to create content for a BBC Earth YouTube channel.
The BBC Earth YouTube channels have collectively over 3 million subscribers and have amassed over 945 million views, connecting audiences around the world with factual content on demand, every day. The main channel is the home of BBC Studios Natural History Unit’s legendary archive; Earth Unplugged makes you think about animals and natural history in a new way; And Earth Lab is the best science classroom you never had – tackling burning questions about the science that affects us.
Alex Ayling, Head of Digital Studios for Global Brands, at BBC Studios “We have a great family of presenters already and we feel a great responsibility to make sure that the next generation of STEM professionals, whoever they are and wherever they come from, have someone to look up to that they can relate to. I’m so excited to see what kind of science communicator talent, and future role models, there are out there waiting to be discovered.”
Entry videos must be submitted by 23:59 (BST) on 5th July 2018. Entries will be judged on how fresh the approach to science communication is, how clearly the facts can be understood by an audience on the internet and how much of the presenter’s passion comes across in their presenting style.
It couldn’t be easier to enter if you think you have what it takes:
First, make a video in English explaining your favourite science fact in under 60 seconds. (This should be a new video made just for this competition).
Feel free to use vlog style, interview someone, intercut with animation, or use a (safe!) practical demonstration to get your fact across. We really want to see your creative approach to science communication.
Post that video publicly (so we can find it) to either YouTube, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
Use the hashtag #BBCEarthPresenterSearch somewhere in the title / tweet / post.
Fill in the entry form online and include a link to your video and a short statement about why you want to be the next BBC Earth presenter
