ByGez Smith

The competition to join the Worthy FM crew at Glastonbury Festival 2013 has been open about a week now, and some people have been getting in touch with us to ask questions about it.

To give everyone an equal chance in the competition, and to help you submit the best entry you possibly can, we’re going to publish the questions and their answers below.

Q. When you write ‘you need to record and produce 30 seconds of audio that demonstrates your presenting style’ do you mean we should create a new specialised piece of audio for the competition, or would you prefer a montage of catalogued moments?

A. Either a montage of existing links or a specially created piece is acceptable, whichever you feel best represents your style. Whilst quality is important, as long as your entry is clearly audible, you won’t be penalised for limited access to recording equipment.

Q. If I win, will I be camping on-site?

A. Yes, all Worthy FM crew camp next to the station in a secure area up by Worthy Farm. If you’re part of the crew, you have to camp with us, so you can’t go and camp out in the festival instead.

Q. How can I get to the site on the Sunday before the festival opens?

A. Competition winners will be expected to make their own way to Bristol, where they will meet up with the rest of the crew, then travel to the festival site via car pooling or mini bus.

Q. Can I do a different job for you on site?

A. No, sorry, we’re only looking for volunteers to help us with radio broadcasting, and the only way to join our crew is through the competition.

Q. Can you get my band / act into the festival to perform on your station?

A. No, we only have places for our own crew. However, if you’re performing on site next year anyway and would like to come up to the station to promote what you’re up to, then do get in touch with us.

Q. Is there an age limit for entering the competition?

A. No. If you’re aged 16 or over, you’re good to enter by yourself. However, if you’re under 16, you will need to have a parent or guardian on site with you whilst you’re volunteering for us.
