Youth Media Conference
The Youth Media Conference is the only event of its kind in Australia bringing together young community radio broadcasters, media producers, community leaders and organisations from a diverse range of multicultural backgrounds. These young people are Australia’s leading network of up and coming media makers and are the faces that can with much inspiration shape Australia’s radio journalist landscape over the next twenty years.
The NEMBC provides official station delegates with travel subsidies to help with their costs of travel to and from the conference.
The amount of the subsidy will be 50 percent of the cost of a return economy/budget airfare for up to three delegates approved by the station, provided at least one of the delegates is aged under 30, a woman, or from a new and emerging community. All delegates need to be broadcasters with member programs.
Subsidies are only available to official station delegates who have been authorised by the governing body of the station or umbrella group.
Subsidies will only be paid after the conference upon presentation of receipts to the NEMBC Secretariat.
