What should my film be about?
Your film should tell us who you are and show why you are the right person for the job. From there, the sky is the limit: what we’re looking for is creativity, originality and to get a good grasp of your skills and capabilities. Looking for inspiration? Check out last year’s winning entries.
What are the guidelines?
You must be over 18 years of age to enter. Your film must include the Master Your Craft title card and must be between one and three minutes long. For a full list of guidelines, please visit our terms and conditions page.
When does the competition close?
Entries close December 3rd, 2019. The winner will be announced in late December.
Do I need to submit a BTS film like in My RØDE Reel?
No, you don’t need to submit a behind-the-scenes film.
What are the salary and employment terms?
The salary will be commensurate with your skills and experience – but will be a minimum of $40,000 AUD, gross of taxes, per annum. You will also receive four weeks of paid holiday, as well as all the other perks of working at RØDE like free gym access and regular social events.
How long is the internship and when does it start?
You’ll be here for 12 months, unless your Australian working visa terms are for less than this. The minimum period is 3 months. The internship will commence at a suitable time in early-2020.
Do I need an Australian working visa?
Yes, but we’ll help you apply for one, as well as pay any application fees. However, you’ll have to pay any local expenses yourself, such as getting a medical certificate.
What kind of work will I be doing?
The team work on a huge variety of content – short films, product demos, interviews, tutorials, documentaries, and more (check out our YouTube!) – and you’ll be an integral part of the crew, working on everything from ideation right through to production, editing, and marketing.
Where will I be working and living?
RØDE Microphones is located in beautiful Sydney, Australia. You’ll be working at our HQ in Silverwater, which is a 30-minute drive from the city centre. We’ll put you up in comfy accommodation close to work and the city, beaches and other attractions, so you don’t have to stress about where you’re living.
