cJAM runner-up for Regional Award

A unique event run by the Faculty of Culture and the Creative Industries at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) has become a runner-up in the Educate North Awards.

The annual Careers Jamming Session (cJAM) is an event where students learn from the best in the business and pitch to senior editors to win work placements. After an extremely successful multi-year run as a single event, 2018 saw the expansion of the programme with four cJAM events running throughout November.

The cJAM events were nominated for the Student Experience Award – University Sector, an award sponsored by Commicorp UK.

The 2019 awards were presented during an evening ceremony event on 25 April at the Hilton Deansgate in Manchester.

Media experts and students alike gathered at the latest cJAM event

The Great Northern Creative Expo

The Great Northern Creative Expo has evolved from a commitment to promote and showcase the creative talent that has been developed at the University of Central Lancashire in Preston and to also introduce to the world, the fantastic students and professionals that we have working at the University, whilst opening our doors to the city, to the North and the world beyond. Once again, the expo will introduce a variety of talent which will include film, photography, media and journalism with performances, workshops, masterclasses, music, monologues, networking, animation and inspiration to one and all. The expo has attracted some of the leading creative talent (nationally and internationally) and we are pleased to offer students, academics and the general public the opportunity to share a stimulating experience of creative talent which can be viewed, evaluated and enjoyed by everyone!
