Channel 4’s Battlefront

Channel 4’s Battlefront is back and they need you!

Do you want to get your voice heard and make a difference? Now is your chance…

Battlefront is an exciting, award winning web and television project from Channel 4.

Channel 4 are looking for a bunch of dedicated 14 –22 year olds who want to put their heart and soul into running a campaign about an issue they care passionately about.

As one of the Battlefront campaigners you’ll be given access to campaign mentors, celebrities and support from Channel 4, all in the name of helping you make a real difference. If you have the passion and the commitment, the sky is the limit!

The last two series covered a huge range of topics: from fighting knife crime, to getting thousands of people to sign the organ donor list, starting the very first National Youth Orchestra of Iraq, tackling airbrushing in magazines, ensuring online safety… and that’s the tip of the iceberg.

Take a look at the Battlefront website and see what it’s all about! This is an amazing opportunity to do something completely different, really fun, and to prove that change can happen. You will need to think of an idea for your campaign – what in life is unjust? What do you want people to think about? What makes you feel outraged? What needs to change?

Just go to www.battlefront.co.uk or email your campaign idea and contact details to battlefront@rawtelevision.co.uk

Good luck!

Eversheds Unlocked is specifically designed for students  who may never have imagined pursuing a career as a professional lawyer.

Would you like hands-on experience of what it’s like to be a lawyer? Do you want genuine support to achieve your potential? And are you excited by the possibility of developing your very own ‘pathway’ to a career in law?

Then Eversheds Unlocked could be the key you’ve been looking for…

John le Carré: Short Story Competition

John le Carré is famous for writing dazzling novels about the contemporary world – whether he is writing about the Cold War in the 1960s, the ‘War on Terror’ in the early twenty-first century and, today, in Our Kind of Traitor; a story that could have come straight out of Wikileaks.

Penguin Books in collaboration with the Daily Telegraph are inviting anyone in the UK between 16-18 years old to write a short story that reflects the contemporary world. It can be any genre and – like all of le Carré’s fiction, should reflect the contemporary world. The word limit is 2000 words.

Penguin’s fiction editors will compile a shortlist of the best entries, and
John le Carré will pick the winner.

The winning story will be published in the Daily Telegraph and on the Penguin website.

The winner will receive a signed limited edition of le Carré’s recent novel, Our Kind of Traitor, along with ten Penguin paperbacks at a special prize-giving event at the winner’s school or sixth form college.

The prize will be presented by John le Carré at the college or school attended by the winner.

The winning school or Sixth Form College will receive the full Penguin Decades collection – 20 classic novels from the last four decades.
