Voice-overs battle it out to win contract

Four budding voiceovers are battling to win a year’s contract with a talent agency, in a competition organised by the Earshot Creative Review podcast.

Hundreds of entries to the Hobsons Voicesearch 2012 have been narrowed down to a shortlist of four. They are Mark Hulmes from Southend-on-Sea, Sefa Nkyi from South East London, Jumoke Ogunkoya, originally from Nigeria and now living in Milton Keynes and Scott Frazer from Newcastle upon Tyne.

They now face three challenges run to decide the winner – the first is a “narrative read” for a BBC Four Shakespeare trailer, with BBC Cross-trails producer James Stodd. The results can be heard on this month’s Earshot podcast. The candidates will go on to voice a commercial script at Global Radio, and a package of sweepers for student radio at Reelworld.

Their efforts will be judged by Steve Martin, editor of Earshot Creative, Ann Dawsons, client service manager at Hobsons, Jo McCrostie, head of creative at Global Radio and Clare Bowen, head of creative development at the Radio Advertising Bureau. The winner receives a twelve-month professional artist representation contract with Hobsons.
