ABC Top 5 Media Residencies - Close 1 June
Date: Monday 1 June
Overview: The ABC is pleased to be partnering once again with the University of Sydney for TOP 5 Humanities, a media residency to discover Australia's next generation of dynamic thinkers and give them a voice. The scheme aims to equip emerging Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS) scholars with media and communication skills to share their ideas and specialist knowledge widely through expert commentary, analysis and programs. Winners will work alongside some of Australia's best journalists and broadcasters to train in the craft of radio and TV interviews and develop content across the ABC's platforms to engage new audiences.
Applications are now open for outstanding PhD-qualified early-career researchers who are working in the HASS disciplines at Australian universities and research organisations. Following this national call-out, applicants will be shortlisted for interview by a panel of judges. The final TOP 5 will undertake a two-week media residency in late September/early October at the ABC Ultimo Centre in Sydney.
