SINGAPORE: Always wanted to be a radio deejay?


The winner of "So You Want To Be A DJ" will get the chance to join the ranks of popular deejays like The Muttons - Justin Ang (right) and Vernon Anthonisz (left).

Now is your chance.

Aspiring deejays will get the opportunity to realize their dream in MediaCorp Radio's "So You Wanna Be A DJ" talent contest.

Winners will get a juicy 6-month contract as a radio deejay with MediaCorp, along with a S$3000 cash prize.

"From time to time, we have people writing to us enquiring how they could be a MediaCorp radio deejay. We are now giving them the chance," said OLI 96.8FM Programme Director Geeta Sivasubramanian, who is in charge of the contest.

"We are looking for fresh young voices."

"To help participants prep themselves, they will also to exposed to exclusive training modules, with the training undertaken by experienced radio personalities."

"This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity," said Sivasubramanianin, in an e-mail interview on Wednesday

Making the cut

The nation-wide talent contest, a part of MediaCorp radio's 75th anniversary celebrations, will kick off with a walk-in audition at Orchard Central on May 29 at 12pm.

32 contestants (eight contestants per radio station) aged between 16 and 29 will be selected to compete for a deejay contract with each of the four participating radio stations - Y.E.S 933FM, 987FM, Oli 96.8FM and Ria 89.7FM.

The eight contestants will have a chance to show off their on-air prowess in a weekly hour-long radio shows on each of the four participating radio stations from June.

Two contestants will be eliminated each week based on the results of listeners' SMS voting as well the scores given by a panel of judges, until only one pair remains.

The four winners of the contest – one per radio station – will be named at a finale party on July 9.

Listeners will also have a chance to win up to S$1000 in cash and prizes by tuning in to the radio shows.

"The contest is a celebration of the job of a deejay. It's a brand new concept featuring a reality-based radio show," said Sivasubramanian.

"We hope that at the end of the challenges [on the radio shows], they (the contestants) will be in a better position to appreciate what a radio deejay actually does."

Applicants below 21 will require parental consent.

"So You Wanna Be A DJ" application forms can be found here.
