Our Spot On Roving Reporters are the eyes and the ears of the festival! Since last year, our reporters have been roaming the festival with a camera, microphone, pen and notepad reporting and keeping you in the loop with the latest from the festival.

Led by industry professional Timothy Wells, young people in Western Sydney are invited to apply to become one of our select group of Spot On Roving Reporters. Applicants will commit to being part of Group 1 or Group 2 and will participate in a half-day workshop on basic video equipment handling, reporting and interviewing techniques which they will use during the following two days.

This unique experience will allow you to learn new skills, build your confidence, make friends, work as a team, meet and interview some of the cast of our Spot On shows, interview audience members on their time at Spot On and see some of the amazing events. All Roving Reporters receive a Certificate of Participation.

Apply now and join us for this free spot-acular school holiday experience!

To apply you must be

    • 8 – 18 years old
    • Living or studying in Western Sydney
    • Available to commit to the dates and times for Group 1 or Group 2
