The Red Bull Reporter have a simply amazing opportunity up for grabs through their scheme to encourage young, up and coming journalists – they’re launching their 2011 campaign with the opportunity for one budding journalist to report from within Red Bull Racing at the Monaco and Silverstone grands prix, as well as spending time at the Milton Keynes factory in between.
There are plenty of ‘get writing’ competitions out there, but this one just takes the biscuit – simply incredible opportunity and we encourage anyone with journalistic ideas for the future to get involved – read more about this opportunity below…
Red Bull Reporter returns for 2011 with the most exciting and unique assignment to date. Providing up and coming journalists with the opportunity to kick start their careers in the media, Red Bull Reporter is offering one successful applicant the chance to report for 2010’s Formula One double world champions, Red Bull Racing. For two months the reporter will be working from within the team between Monaco and the British Grand Prix.
The successful journalist will be given exclusive access to the factory, team members and management as they join the team in Monaco and Silverstone as well as report from within the Milton Keynes base for the periods in between races. Writing as an autonomous journalist within the Red Bull Racing editorial team, the Red Bull Reporter will also get the opportunity to have their work published in a national publication.
The reporter’s exclusive access will include full team access at the Monaco GP, including media briefings, access to the drivers’ simulator at the factory, the chance to sit in on media sessions with the drivers, Christian Horner and Adrian Newey and Grandstand seats at Silverstone for the British GP.
This year Red Bull Reporter will be offering up and coming journalists the chance to take part in three unique and exclusive assignments across the year. In addition to the three official assignments, the reporter community will have the opportunity to apply for press passes for Red Bull events, sport fixtures and festivals across the year to boost their portfolios on the site.
Budding journalists can apply by visiting www.redbullreporter.com and creating a profile before submitting examples of work, profiles can be seen by all Red Bull Reporter users who are encouraged to rate and comment on each other’s submissions. Each profile acts as the reporter’s portfolio and will be considered when users apply for specific assignments.
