Wanted! Backstage reporter for Reading Festival

Wanted! Backstage reporter for Reading Festival to spread the global hunger campaign message!

As the UK festival season kicks off around the country, Bollocks to Poverty, the youth arm of anti-poverty charity ActionAid, is urging motivated young people to get involved in spreading the Bollocks to Poverty message backstage at the Reading Festival 2010. Through the Work it! competition, one lucky winner can live the dream of being an intrepid backstage reporter interviewing bands like Gun’s n’ Roses, Arcade Fire, LCDSoundsystem and the Klaxons. They will also need to be passionate and articulate about spreading the anti-hunger word – because it will also be their job to get the musicians they interview on board with the campaign.
The ideal candidate will be brimming with confidence and totally comfortable about approaching famous people. Applicants are invited to enter the competition by making a video of themselves – showing just how gutsy and up for it they are. The winner will need to be available to be part of the Bollocks to Poverty team during the Reading Festival 2010 during August 27th, 28th, 29th.

Find out more about the competition here:

The competitors must be aged between 18¬-25 on 1st August 2010
ActionAid will announce the winner on 12th August, so the deadlines for applications are 26th July.
