Can anyone become a Digital Reporter?
You will need to be computer literate, eager to learn and enthusiastic about all things digital. You also need to be over the age of 18.
And finally you need to be willing to give up time to attend the workshops and events that need documenting. It’s worth mentioning here that the scheme has been extremely popular in previous years so please only apply if you can commit to the monthly workshops (held in the evening) and contribute regularly to documenting events (these take place at various times in the week and weekends).
