NMIT TV has upgraded to full HD broadcast quality capability at the cost of $2m, most of which has been invested in equipment. The studio now matches, and in some cases surpasses national broadcast production facilities.

The three best schools will receive one whole day (8hrs) in the magnificent NMIT TV studio completely free of charge. This prize includes the services of Cameron Bailey, our Studio Manager and Technical Director.

Each winning school is free to propose whatever use of the studio they like, in consultation with Cameron, and will work with your teachers and classmates to make your proposal a reality, and to maximise the benefits in utilising our studio.

Each winning school will be responsible for organising all pre-production including schedules, content, performers, scripts, rehearsals, sets, props, costumes, make-up and crew to operate the equipment -hand's on operating the very latest in TV broadcast technology!
