Channel 4 Calls Out For Digital Content

News Image
Channel 4 has issued a call-out for digital content aimed at teens aged 13-16 years-old. The content will be showcased across the channel’s social media platforms over the coming year.

The content will give a platform to fresh, unheard voices from across the country, and at least 50% of the content spend for the project will be allocated to commissions that are BAME and nations and regions led.

Channel 4's trusted brand values will be at the heart of the content, with a commitment to be innovative and distinctive, with a mix of light and serious, funny and entertaining, as well as delving into personal and thought-provoking themes.

The content ideas sought could range from 1-10 minutes, something longer or somewhere in between, as long as it really packs a punch.

The initiative will be overseen by Controller of E4, Karl Warner and managed by Digital Commissioning Executive, Navi Lamba.

Navi Lamba, says: "We want new talent, exciting ideas and relatable themes to engage with the younger generation by reflecting their lives and things they care about. Content that is for them, not just about them. We want important, clever or world-changing stuff for teens, in a way that doesn’t take itself too seriously."
