The Josh Edmonds Memorial Scheme is an annual opportunity for young people in Gloucestershire to win a months internship at the MOS. It was set up in 2013 to honour the memory of Josh Edmonds who studied at Cirencester College and then went on to work as a video producer for the Ministry of Sound.
Josh died aged 22 in a road accident while traveling in SE Asia in early 2011. Josh was a passionate music lover and a talented video maker. He studied video production at Cirencester College before working for the Ministry of Sound where he produced over 200 videos for the club. The scheme provides a similar opportunity to emerging talent from Gloucestershire.
The successful applicant gains a real insight into the workings of a major music brand, develops their own talent, and gets the chance to meet and work with experienced creatives in the world of popular music.
How does the scheme work?
The scheme runs annually. The deadline for applications is on Friday 18th March 2016. Interviews will be on 14th April 2016.
