BT Sport has kicked off its nationwide search for the next Jake Humphrey or Caroline Pearce with the BT Sport Young FA Cup Presenter of the Year competition.
The competition will present the winner with the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of being part of BT Sport’s live FA Cup Final coverage on May 17th.
On FA Cup Final day from London’s Wembley stadium, the winner will film a segment for BT Sport’s broadcast of that match alongside lead football anchor Jake Humphrey.
They will also get to bring their family or friends to the big occasion and watch the match.
Runners-up prizes include FA Cup semi-final tickets and football shirts signed by the BT Sport presenting team.
To enter, contestants simply need to shoot and record an original, one minute, single-camera-shot of themselves presenting a news report around the 2013/14 FA Cup.
Entries can be shot using a smartphone or professional camera but cannot include additional footage, interviews, music or graphics and should feature only the individual entering the competition.
Contestants then simply need to upload the video to their YouTube account and send the URL to BT Sport as part of the entry form submission on the BT Sport website.
Jake Humphrey, who will help identify the winner as a judge, said “We want to celebrate the tournament by unearthing future talent and great stories, by giving youth an opportunity to join in.
“This could be a great moment for one lucky girl or boy – I cannot wait to view the entries and present with that winner on FA Cup Final day.”
Grant Best, BT Sport’s senior executive channel producer, who will judge entries alongside Jake and the BT Sport team, added: “We’re looking for bright, engaging and captivating young talent as we celebrate the magic of the FA Cup this season.”
The competition is open to UK residents aged 13 to 16 years old who have parental/guardian permission to enter.
