ISYY's Wappu-Broadcast 2021!

Wappu can’t be stopped, not even by corona! ISYY is back with another chance to participate in the vappu-spirit and general party-atmosphere online via ISYY Wappu-broadcast!

ISYY Wappu-broadcast guarantees all students and anyone else interested a chance to follow live-broadcasts, prerecorded programs and participate in studio shows during vappu week from April 26th ‘till 1st of May.

This year our program is divided into two segments:

  • Audio broadcast between April 26th and 29th, 14-21 every day, and
  • Video broadcast on April 30th between 12-21 and 1st of May between 12-17.

Throughout the Wappu-broadcast you can follow us through a link available on ISYY webpage from April 26th onwards.

But that’s not all, because now you have a chance to practice your radio voice or share your epic videos for everyone! Gather up your friend group, student association, club or come as you are and participate in the making of Wappu-broadcast 2021! Also, if you heard about this event from a friend, even if you’re not a student, and you’ve always dreamt of making a podcast, streaming games or posting vlogs about any subject imaginable, now is the time! At the end of this post you can find links to form where you can submit your material or reserve a timeslot for yourself.

These deadlines are in effect to ensure that we have time to inspect and edit the material for the broadcast. You can deliver material after the dates, but but we cannot guarantee sufficient time window for later delivered content.

Tips for making your program:

  • Make sure, that your sound quality as as good as it can be. Even in videos, the sound quality is the most important factor in the quality of the program, so it’s worth doing well. Many modern smartphones have surprisignly good microphones, as long as there isn’t too much ambient noise. If necessary, you can borrow a microphone from ISYY. 
  • Use for example Open Broadcaster Software or a similar recording software if you want to create your program online with your friends or sharing your own screen.
  • ISYY won’t edit your program except in special cases, so make sure that you have edited your program so that you are happy with it and that it more or less fits the given time limits.
  • You can also make a multi part program, if you so please!
