one lucky winner a
opportunity to go
to the rainforest and
To be a great Rainforest Reporter you need to be able to spot and tell a good story, be comfortable on and behind the camera, and be good with your hands. On 20 April we invited our 25 budding Rainforest Reporters to take part in our regional heats, where we put their skills to the test.
The candidates had one hour to complete three challenges: an interview with an RSPB staff member, a two-minute piece to camera and a tent building exercise.
Complete a two-minute interview with a member of RSPB staff
As the Rainforest Reporter, the winner will have the opportunity to conduct interviews with lots of people including those from local communities. This challenge was all about seeing how our candidates would put together an engaging and interesting interview piece, with insightful questions and a good flow.
Complete a two-minute piece
The Rainforest Reporter will need to complete a number of video blogs while in the rainforest, which will be put up on the Together For Trees website. This challenge gave our candidates the opportunity to demonstrate how comfortable they were in front of the camera and to prove whether they could relay an interesting story and inspire their audience.
Erect a tent in 10 minutes or less.
To see how practical and adaptable our candidates were, this challenge saw them pitch a tent, while explaining what they were doing to camera. The Rainforest Reporter not only needs to be a good storyteller and have a passion for conservation, they also need to be able to get stuck in and be hands on.
