CMC 2014
Dates: 2 – 4 July
Location: Sheffield UK
Theme: Child@Heart
Session producers: send your one-pagers to

Are you a Child@Heart?

We’re looking for session topics and volunteers to produce the content for the world’s best-loved Children’s Media Talkfest.

Session Content
Anyone with a topic in mind should send a one-page proposal to the Conference Editorial Director, Greg Childs. Let him know if you also want to produce your session. It’s a tough job, but every year 50 volunteers supervise all the conference content, which is how the CMC can still claim to be truly “by the industry, for the industry”.

The brief for session proposals is pretty straightforward.  Send us a one-page pitch that answers these questions:
− What is the topic, subject matter or issue?
− In what way is it new or innovative?
− How might the session be structured? Debate, discussion panel, single speaker, master-class?
− Who might be on your ideal contributor list?  They don’t need to have been approached – but who is realistically in your sights?
− Which of the many industry sectors that attend CMC will it attract?
− What will they take away at the end?

Session Producers
Some volunteers come forward to offer their experience and expertise without proposing a topic, and that’s ok because we need a pool of session producers too.  In that case just send Greg a CV.
