The Saudi Media Forum will launch on February 20-21, 2023 in Riyadh the first initiative of its kind to qualify Saudi broadcasters and media practitioners, with the participation of the Radio and Television Corporation, MBC Media Group, Al Arabiya, and Rotana.
The initiative, which is launched under the title “Be a Broadcaster”, includes a field experience to evaluate young talents through a specialized arbitration committee consisting of media competencies with various backgrounds.
The program includes several tracks for auditions and the qualification of competitors for television, radio, and podcast presentation.
The media entities participating in the program will allow the contestants to learn about scientific concepts and practical applications in the field of media content production in its various forms.
This partnership will also make it possible to adopt these talents and provide them with promising professional opportunities by opening employment paths in different specializations for those who have achieved impressive results.
The President of the Saudi Media Forum and CEO of the Radio and Television Corporation, Mohammed bin Fahd Al-Harthy, explained that the authority’s participation in such development initiatives comes within the framework of assuming its inherent role in contributing to the manufacture of young national competencies capable of keeping pace with the rapid developments in the media industry.
He stressed that the authority is determined to provide the necessary support for the success of this program by harnessing its advanced resources and benefiting from the outputs of this program.
The initiative aims to provide an incubating environment for promising talents in visual media and audio production.
It also aims to enable them to keep pace with the rapid developments in the media arena.
The initiative represents an ideal opportunity for media graduates and promising young people interested in the field of television and podcasting to show their abilities and take advantage of the capabilities that media networks will offer.
