If you're a young Christian who's looking to break into the media or gain new skills, then theMediaNet Academy could be just what you're looking for.
The Church and Media Network is offering up to 16 FREE places on a 3-day training academy at its annual conference in Derbyshire.

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.
