RTÉ in association with Mediacon are calling on new and emerging video creators based in Ireland to enter Creator of the Year 2018 and be in with a chance of winning a tailored creative mentorship development programme in RTÉ and full access to the Mediacon Summit 2018. 

Would you like to be, or do you think you could already be, the next Casey Neistat? 

Are you a Vlogger, Instagrammer, Snapchatter, YouTuber or just a passionate social content maker? Are you a creator who has something to say or stories you want to share? Are you over 18? If the answer is yes then RTÉ and Mediacon want to hear from you.

What We Want

Send us a short video no longer than ten minutes of your creation (if multiple videos, do us a favour and stitch them together). It can be brand new, never seen before content or something you’ve created recently.

We want engaging, but we want appropriate (nothing that will frighten your Nana, and nothing that harms anyone or anything in the making) 

Make sure your video submission falls into one of these categories; Comedy, Entertainment, Fashion, Beauty, Health or Fitness, Travel or Adventure, Social Change, Vlog, Sport, Mini Documentary, Technology or Gaming, Reality, On a Shoestring.  

How We Want It

You should deliver your work as one continuous video or a series of shorter videos edited together. Just upload to YouTube or Vimeo and submit the link by filling out the application form below.

And Then What?

A panel of judges from RTÉ and Mediacon will review all submissions and produce a shortlist. The top five finalists will attend the Mediacon summit in Dublin on 23rd November, where the overall winner will be announced. The winner will receive a tailored mentorship programme in RTÉ in 2019. So get cracking!

And One Last Thing...

Closing date is midnight 12th November 2018
