Get Involved

The Children’s Media Conference depends upon the goodwill and volunteer effort of a huge range of people and companies across all the sectors we serve. We’d like to encourage you to join us in one of these vital roles.

Our sponsors are a cross-section of the kids’ media industry, ranging from major broadcasters to small service providers and indies. More information on becoming a sponsor.

Advisory Committee
Our Advisory Committee meets monthly to develop the Conference theme, topics, speaker list and session ideas. Advisory members and ex-members all act as Executive Producers of the sessions and workshops at the CMC in July. Membership of the committee is by invitation.

The sessions are all produced by volunteers drawn from a wide range of roles in the kids’ media community. We are indebted to them and to the speakers, moderators and presenters they persuade to join the conference every year. If you have an idea for a topic and/or would like to produce a session at the CMC,  download Offering content ideas – CMC 2018 which tells you how.

The Conference is reported by a volunteer blogging team supervised by a blog editor.

Hands volunteers 14Each session is technically supervised by a technical coordinator, assisted by runners, and the front of house and registration teams at the CMC are also all volunteers – drawn from universities and colleges across the UK.

…we received praise for our efforts and exchanged a million and one business cards, for future connections, job opportunities and internships. The generosity of the busy media delegates was phenomenal and I felt so privileged to be a part of such an amazing media event.
