The Children’s Media Conference, now in its 17th year, is temporarily becoming The Children’s Media Community for 2020 in response to the cancellation of its planned conference in Sheffield, U.K. from July 7-9 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

With a revised theme of ‘Still Here Right Now,’ CMC will provide an ongoing service to all involved in the children’s media industry, offering a program of virtual educational seminars over the next few months, culminating in a virtual conference in July.

CMC is planning a regular weekly roll out of webinars and content, offering the children’s community a wide range of discussions on topics, The event will kick-off from July 7-9  and include the International Exchange which will run via virtual one-to-one meetings.

“The Children’s Media Community always steps up in a crisis,” says Greg Childs, editorial director, Children’s Media Community. “In the last few weeks, the children’s content community has been nothing short of brilliant in pulling together a

new way of looking at the conference they help create every year.  As a result, we’re pleased to say that CMC 2020 is rebranding ‘for the duration’ as the Children’s Media Community and refocusing its theme from ‘Right Here Right Now’ to ‘STILL Here Right Now’. What that means is that volunteer producers will still work on great sessions, helped by the CMC Advisory Committee, and they’ll be delivered to people’s desktops on a regular basis right up to and including a virtual conference in July. We can come together as a community to share the learning, insights and inspiration, challenge, argue and discuss – just as we do in Sheffield – but you’ll need to make your own tea.”

All registration details and information on the webinars (including Zoom log-in details) will be available on the

CMC website.
