The BBC Young Reporter Competition is back for 2023!
It’s an opportunity for 11-18 year olds in the UK to share an original story idea with the BBC.
Winning stories will be produced with the help of BBC journalists, producers and programme makers for broadcast on TV, radio, online or on social media.
What kind of stories are we looking for?
There is just one story category: Me and My World
What story idea do you think the BBC should be reporting?
The story should be original: something that hasn’t been widely reported on before, or that can help bring a new and unique angle to a subject.
It can be a personal story, or something related to the experience of a young person’s family, friends or community, or an issue or experience particularly relevant to young people.
Here are some of the winning entries from last year, to give you an idea of what stories have been selected and broadcast in the past.
Simply USE THIS FORM to send us an outline of the story idea – entries can be written or recorded as short video or audio clip.
Ideas should be submitted by Friday 31 March 2023 at 23:59.
Don’t worry about style or format at this stage. We don’t want the finished report, just an outline of what it is about and why it should be reported to a wider audience.
Remember, we are looking for original ideas about an issue or a personal experience which has not been widely reported on before, or does not normally appear on the BBC.
Entries can be made by an individual or a group of young people.
Parent/guardian permission is needed to enter.
The rules for the competition are here.
