All workshops, for 11 to 16 year olds, will be delivered by experienced professionals from each area of the industry.

The young people will also be given opportunities to gain practical experience with their new found skills by supporting youth based community organisations.

This may be in the form of gathering photographs, making a short film or supporting social media activities that help support the organisation.

This leads to the possibility of the young person being nominated in one of the categories for the 2017 Fenland Youth Awards.
