Young Reporter Competition - BBC

What is the BBC Young Reporter Competition?

It’s an opportunity for young people to report with the BBC.

The BBC are looking for original stories about your lives or the world around you, or relating to subjects and issues that particularly matter to young people.

Anyone aged between 11-18 years old and living in the UK can enter.

If the idea is successful, it could appear on TV, radio, online or on social media - produced with the help of BBC journalists, producers and programme makers.

What kind of stories are the BBC looking for?

There is just one story category: Me and My World

Ideas for reports can be a personal story - something related to the experience of family, friends or community - or about an issue or experience particularly relevant to young people.

Ideally, story ideas will be original: something that hasn’t been widely reported on before, or that can help bring a new and unique angle to a subject. Story suggestions should be uploaded USING THIS ONLINE FORM by Sunday 24 March 2024 at 23:00.
