Cambridge University Press searches for next YouTube stars

Cambridge University Press has launched a global competition to find four presenters for its new YouTube channel.

The channel – ‘Learn English with Cambridge’- will support English language learners by teaching them how to use English in the real world.

Rupert Daniels, Global Marketing Director at Cambridge University Press, said: “From new words and popular phrases, to how to prepare for an interview, or how to order something in a restaurant, we want our channel to offer fun, informativeand practical language advice to show how people can use English in the real world.

“Using their knowledge of English and Language Teaching, our presenters will need to create video content driven by the topics that our followers want to learn about.”

To enter, simply send in a video submission by Wednesday, 31 October 2018. A panel of English Language Teaching experts at Cambridge will review all of the entries and shortlist ten, which will be put to a public vote in November. The four winners will be awarded a one-year contract with the Press to publish videos for Learn English with Cambridge. They will also receive:

· the use of a computer and editing software, camera and lighting equipment to record and edit their productions

· guidance and training on contemporary video production techniques

· a monthly fee for their production and presentation services.

The competition is open to entrants worldwide. To find out more and submit your entry, please visit http://www.cambridge.org/learnenglish
