NOTE - THIS IS NOT JUST FOR CHRISTIANS, PLEASE READ FULLY!!!
Now for something a little different... Cold voters please READ through before voting cold - this could be the difference in making or breaking a career aspiration for young (18-35) media professionals. They only pay for their travel to get there (as you would with any freebie listed here) and pay a registration fee. Pass this on to anyone you may know who may be interested or vote HOT if you want this to help the young 'uns of today get a boost in their job search.
Most important info at the start - Best of all, it's free. Training, accommodation and access to the conference will all be provided for you. All you'll need to pay are your travelling expenses and a £30 registration fee. To qualify for a free place, you'll need to be at least 18 but less than 35 years of age at the time of the conference. You must also be able to demonstrate a commitment to Christian faith and/or an interest in working in the faith sector of the media.
The Church and Media Network is offering up to 16 FREE places on a 3-day training academy at its annual conference in Derbyshire. With the support and supervision of experienced tutors, trainees will work as part of a multi-platform production team. They will break into smaller groups to work on either radio, video or web content. The content will then be showcased in front of the whole conference on the final day.
All of this happens in the middle of a busy conference, where trainees can mingle with leading figures from the media and faith communities.
theMediaNet Academy will be a great way to learn the ropes and get a head-start when it comes to applying for media jobs.
What you will get out of taking part:
* a chance to learn new skills and develop existing ones;
* the opportunity to meet other young Christians trying to break into the media;
* useful experience for your CV;
* input from specialist experts;
* having your work seen by media professionals.
