£150 towards training or membership of the New Producers Alliance!

newproducersallianceThis just in from David at the NPA - funding for NPA membership OR training. If it wasn't for attending their famed producer training I wouldn't have incorporated Netribution. If only I'd stayed to the end of the course, I might have not actually focussed on making features! Well recommended:

The Women in Digital Entertainment (WiDE) project and the Business and Digital Media Training Initiative (BDMTI) are joint funded by the European Social Fund and the University College for the Creative Arts and are designed to support people in the digital media industry and those wishing to enter the industry.

Beneficiaries of the projects are able to access up to £150 from an external training fund which could cover the cost of NPA membership or an NPA training course.
