Young Presenter Competition 2019

BAFTA Kids in partnership with First News is looking for its next Young Presenter.  We want someone to bring their special talents to the screen and join Tianna, Braydon and Daniel in the BAFTA Kids family. This year, the competition theme is I CARE ABOUT... It can be about anything, but make it personal to YOU!

Here’s what you’ll get if you win:

You’ll become BAFTA’s very own Young Presenter, filming for BAFTA Kids throughout the year.  Your first assignment will be at the BAFTA Children’s Awards in December and you’ll even get to present an award at the ceremony!  You will also be offered a special filming opportunity with Sky Kids' news show, FYI.

The closing date for entries is Friday 6 September 2019 at 17:00 (5pm) BST.
