Mercedes-Benz has launched a new initiative to uncover one of this country's finest reporters-in-waiting.
The company's #SocialReporter competition will present its winner with the opportunity to head to Hard Rock Calling on June 29th, to report on the event and to interview the day's main-stage headliners, Kasabian.
In MB's words: "It’s those behind the camera, the lens and the microphone that define the icons of our lifetime. Mercedes-Benz are looking for that next generation of reporters to document the definitive moments in music and are opening up their own social media channels to give you the platform to express yourself.
"Not only will your words and photography be spotlighted but, with Hard Rock Calling approaching, you’ll be on hand to interview Kasabian and document the festival for Mercedes-Benz."
Which all sounds rather super if you're a music-minded writing-sort with designs on making a career out of This Sort Of Thing. Some amongst Clash's team are journalists, after a fashion, and they will tell you: this writing lark can be a really rewarding career, indeed.
Head over to http://mbsocialreporter.co.uk and submit your entry to become Mercedes-Benz’s Music Reporter this summer, and attend Hard Rock Calling.
