RTÉ and Macalla are looking for teenagers aged between 13 and 19 to take part in a new nationwide project: Life's Like This. Here's the information they asked us to circulate;

On Friday 20th September we want you to film your life and tell the world what you’re doing, feeling or seeing on this particular day. The footage submitted will be compiled into a unique documentary that will be broadcast later this year on RTÉ. Audiences will learn what it’s like to be growing up in Ireland today.

 

To give you an idea of what we are looking for, here is a link to last years Life’s Like This 

Life’s Like This is your documentary. It is about you. It’s about your day. It’s about things that are important to YOU. It’s open to everyone between the ages of 13 and 19.
