For three years now the word Radio-eaters causes heart palpitation and high blood pressure in a good sense – and no wonder. At last Radio-eaters is one of the biggest and most important competitions organised for young people. From the very beginning radio Znad Willi has been the organiser of the project. The aim of the competition is to encourage young people to actively spend their time and perhaps to discover that journalism is their thing. The main theme of this year’s edition of the competition is the summer break and everything related to it.
For three years youths have been competing against each other to gain the title of the best Radio-eater reporter. Apart from the prestige that comes with winning the title, there are valuable prizes to be won and nothing in terms of the rewards has changed this year.
Although the main aim of the competition has stayed the same, the manner of recording has been amended. Participants now have the possibility of recording sound with any mobile device (i.e. mobile phone, camera). The reports can be recorded as an interview or as a voice diary of “a journey to unknown places”. It is however essential that the end product is no longer than 10 minutes and is in Polish.
If you want to join, you can sign up as an individual or a duet providing that you go to the same school. Closing date is the 15th of July. Registration form and the list of rules that are to be obeyed can be found on the organiser’s website (zw.lt) and on their Facebook profile.
Reports are to be sent in until the end of the summer break, which is the 1st of September.
The Grand Final will be held on the 22nd of September. We will then reveal the winners and hand out the prizes. The famous, top-shelf in Poland, Paranormal cabaret will also attend to present a show for the audience.
Practical support and support in general can be found on the Facebook profile of „Wakacje Radiożerców” (http://www.facebook.com/WakacjeRadiozercow) or at the following address: www.znadwilii.lt. We encourage to “like” the Facebook page for latest info and updates.
We wish you all a very radio-like holiday…
