ReelWorld and Swedish Radio are helping an initiative to get more young people to the Radiodays Europe Conference in Paris.
They’ve sponsored the Nextgener scheme, which this year is taking six delegates between 18 and 30 to the event for free. ReelWorld is also the sponsor of the RadioAcademy 30 under 30.
Applicants were required to enter a short film and state reasons why they should be a “Nextgener” in Paris.
Radiodays told us competition was tough and they had lots of applications. The six places were awarded to:
Caroline Lagergren from Swedish Radio, Sweden
Juliette Nicholls from Heart, UK
Laura Gallop from Fresh Air Productions, UK
Lovisa Ohlson from Swedish Radio, Sweden
Madeleine Koellner from 94, 3rs2, Germany
Pete Maguire from RTÉ, Ireland
The Nextgeners will be part of a session at the conference on Tuesday afternoon at 1345hrs local time.
