Football: FA WSL and ESPN ‘Search For A Star’ competition

August 28, 2012

The Football Association Women’s Super League has teamed up with global sports channel ESPN and launched the national ‘Search For A Star’ competition, to find the next generation’s sports TV presenter.

The competition welcomes all aspiring sports presenters aged between 12 and 16 and the winner will be given the chance to write and present their own report for ESPN.

The expert judge’s panel will include ESPN football TV presenter Rebecca Lowe, Team GB Olympian Ellen White and ESPN Senior Executive Producer Andrew Hornett.

To enter, hopefuls are asked to upload an original, single-camera 60-second video report on a recent sport event to their own You Tube account and send the URL to the official teen media partner Shout magazine at star@shoutmag.co.uk

Entries will be whittled-down to four lucky finalists who will be invited to the ESPN Studios in London on Tuesday September 25, for an exclusive tour and TV presenting master-class.

The finalists will be given the chance to impress the panel of judges with their newly acquired presenting techniques and a final winner will be chosen.

Rebecca Lowe commented: “I was given my big break through a similar competition and it shows just what hard work and determination can do.”
