SRA Selector initiative returns for students

The British Council is, for the fourth year running, teaming up with the Student Radio Association and Folded Wing, to run the SRA Selector initiative.

This is an opportunity for six UK students to present their own version of The Selector on their student radio station, with the winner spending 10 days at The Selector’s sister radio station Ibero 90.9 in Mexico City next summer.

As part of the initiative, six student presenters from six student radio stations around the UK will be given the opportunity to produce and present their own version of The Selector from January 2017 – April 2017.

Two previous winners – Jack Saunders of Fly FM at Nottingham Trent University and Ross Buchanan of Smoke Radio at Westminster University – both now have their own shows on Radio X.

Each of the six chosen students will:

  • Be given a special kit version of The Selector containing all the individual parts of the show (songs, jingles, sessions, interviews, plus a script). This will enable them to produce and present their own bespoke version of The Selector for their student radio station, being as creative as they wish with all the fantastic Selector content
  • Receive an in-depth two day radio production and presenting training session at Folded Wing
  • Have the opportunity to become a regular content provider for The Selector

The six chosen presenters will be announced at the Student Radio Awards at the O2 in London on Thursday 10th November 2016. Email for details on how to apply.
