Reelworld take 30 under 30 to Italy
ReelWorld, the MediaCityUK based radio jingle and imaging company, is taking The ReelWorld Radio Academy 30 Under 30 initiative to the Radiodays conference in Milan.
This follows last month’s announcement that the 30 Under 30 will continue in 2015 under the new look Radio Academy with support from ReelWorld.
BBC Radio 1 Controller, Ben Cooper, will host a session featuring three of the 2014 30 Under 30 recipients. Jonty Usborne (University Radio Bath), Dave Cribb (Independent Producer), and Joe Friel (Fun Kids) will provide three different perspectives on radio’s future and outline the opportunities of technology, entertainment, and strong brands.
The three day industry event, arguably the world’s biggest radio conference, takes places in Milan at the Milano Congressi between the 15th and 17th March. The session is scheduled for Monday, 16th March at 3.15pm.
Anthony Gay, ReelWorld’s European Managing Director commented: “Our industry is full of brilliant bright young people. Not only should we celebrate them, we should listen to them. What does the future of radio look like through the eyes of professionals who are shaping it from the ground up?”
ReelWorld will also be exhibiting at the conference and talking jingles, imaging and branding throughout Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. The company have also committed their support to this year’s Arqiva Radio Awards and have been delivering branding workshops for students on the media degree at Salford University.
The ReelWorld Radio Academy 30 Under 30 is open to anyone under 30 working in UK radio. It doesn’t matter which sector or discipline they come from. Last year there were a record number of entries from producers, sales people, journalists, presenters, production assistants, PAs, technicians, commercial producers and support staff. The critical qualification is that they are truly exceptional. The final 30 is chosen by an independent panel of judges from across the UK radio industry.
Details of the 2015 30 Under 30 initiative #RWRA30 will be announced later this year.
MediaCityUK-based dock10 has announced a deal to acquire 100% of the shares of 422, the long established Manchester based post production and vfx business. The deal excludes 422’s sister company based in Glasgow, serving the Scottish market, which will stay under its existing independent ownership and will re-brand in the coming months.
