Budding natural history storytellers are being given the chance to apply for a rare opportunity – to become a BBC Earth presenter for a new, four-part series on its YouTube channel.

BBC Earth is searching for someone who is passionate about the planet and natural history, and can communicate this to audiences around the world.


BBC Earth Presenter Search 2018: How to Apply


Applicants need to put together a 60 second video, in English, explaining their favourite scientific fact and post it publicly on either YouTube, Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Applicants must be aged 18 or over on the closing date in order to apply. 

They will then be judged on how fresh the approach to science communication is, how clearly the facts can be understood by an audience on the internet and how much of the presenter’s passion comes across in their presenting style.

“We have a great family of presenters already and we feel a great responsibility to make sure that the next generation of STEM [Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths] professionals, whoever they are and wherever they come from, have someone to look up to that they can relate to,” says Alex Ayling at BBC Studios.

“I’m so excited to see what kind of science communicator talent, and future role models, there are out there waiting to be discovered.”

The closing date for applications is 5 July, with shortlisting and interviews expected to take place in late August and early September. Filming will take place in October and November.
