Two initiatives for community broadcasters are now open for applications.
Both projects give broadcasters the chance to have their programs distributed nationally via the CBAA’s Community Radio Network and be paid for their efforts.
The National Features and Documentary Series aims to encourage storytelling from new and emerging producers around Australia – no experience needed! You should apply if you have a great idea for a radio feature but need some help in planning and production. The Series is open to anyone who volunteers at or is employed by an Australian community radio station, and successful applicants will get:
- Industry-standard radio training through the Community Media Training Organisation to help bring your documentary or feature to life.
- An experienced mentor, who will work with you to make the piece as good as it can be.
- Your work shared nationally via the Community Radio Network
- The chance to win a CBAA Award
- Payment for their work.
CRN Segments is an opportunity to flex your creative thinking, develop production skills, and share radio content on a national platform. Twice a year, the CRN seeks short series for distribution to stations for drop-in use during magazine programming. $500 payments are made on delivery of a 10-part series of segments.
This initiative is suited to producers who have already had experience in radio production.
