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.

Producers and ideas
CMC 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.

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 Conference is reported by a volunteer blogging team supervised by a blog editor. To volunteer as a CMC blog reporter contact

CMC welcomes student volunteers – drawn from universities and colleges across the UK.  They work on sessions as runners, act as front of house assistants or take other roles. Take a look at Jessica Dodds’ Blog on being a CMC volunteer.
