I’m sure you’ve all heard of Melbourne’s community radio station Triple R, some of you may be regular listeners; they are Australia’s largest community radio station with an audience of nearly half a million people per week. They are on the look out for people interested in producing video and photography work on a volunteer basis, which you can sign up for here. If you don’t have much experience, don’t worry – enthusiasm goes a long way here, and getting involved is a great way to learn more about your craft.
I have worked on some of their projects as a volunteer in the past, and can not speak highly enough about the experience. If you’re in any way interested in music, film, video and photography, then this is an incredible place to become involved in. One of the biggest challenges of working within media is finding like-minded people who support and value your skills, knowledge and ability. At RRR you will meet many creative collaborators who are genuinely passionate about what they do, your efforts will be greatly appreciated, and you will be contributing to a world-renowned radio station. This is a valuable thing to do early on in your career, provides an excellent base to work off, and looks very good on your CV. At the very least, sign up and find out more, it will be well worth it!
