BATTLEFRONT: THE CAMPAIGN TO COMBAT YOUTH UNEMPLOYMENT
Battlefront is an Emmy-award winning Channel 4 youth campaigning TV series and online project that follows a group of young campaigners on a mission to change the world.

Last year, the Battlefront campaigners achieved some fantastic results. They lobbied for 1000 new work experiences places for young people, signed up thousands of new organ donors, got government ministers talking about young people’s mental health, raised awareness about the danger to Orangutans from unsustainable palm oil, and got young people to start playing a sport they love. Over three seasons, Battlefronters have tackled everything from knife and gun crime to autism in the workplace. Plus we’ve had questions asked in the Houses of Parliament three times in the past year.

This year, Battlefront is bigger and better than ever, and we’re focusing on the single most important issue facing young people in the UK today – youth unemployment. With over 1 million young people currently unemployed, Battlefront has searched far and wide to find four young unemployed and underemployed Campaigners to tackle the problem. We’ll be employing the four as fully paid members of our team and they’ll head up our campaign on-screen and on the website, asking the important questions and investigating this huge problem which faces so many young people in 2012.

The site also allows individuals to sell video content as well. We wanted to evolve the market created by YouTube into something which also offers commercial return for the user, says Taylor. By allowing people or companies to sell their video content, the site is opening a new stream of commercial possibilities for the phenomenal video-making community that YouTube has created. Think YouTube meets eBay.

Wannabe Contenders must make a profile of themselves online, including a description and video of their act or idea. The daily fate of the Contenders will lie with the online community. The Members will decide which acts make it through by watching their audition videos and voting for who they would like to see. The Contenders with the highest votes will go head-to-head on two specially built glass stages in the middle of Millennium Square, Bristol – of course. Here, they will try to entertain the nation for 6 hours straight. Their attempts will be streamed online and filmed for a BBC Three highlights show. After scrutinising their performance, the public will vote for their favourite act and the winner will stay on. The Champion will perform again the next day with a new Challenger brought forward to try and upstage them. The rivalry all comes to an end on the 30th March with the overall Champion winning something rather tasty. Contenders can be alone or in groups, professional or amateur, entertainer or intellectual, the best of the best or the best of the worst.
