Aspiring young video makers from Gloucestershire are being offered a once in a lifetime opportunity to win an internship at The Ministry of Sound.

The scheme was launched last year by the parents of Josh Edmonds from Chalford.

Josh was a former Cirencester College student who went on to become a video producer at the Ministry of Sound in London. He died in a road accident in Vietnam in 2011 and the scheme is in his memory.

Ministry of Sound Chief Exec Lohan Presencer said; “Josh was a fantastically creative and enthusiastic member of the team at MoS and hopefully this placement will give someone the same opportunities that Josh had and continue his memory”.

Lewis Murphy a University of Gloucestershire student, who was selected last year is the first young person to launch his career in the music industry through the scheme.

Lewis now works for leading drum and bass label, Emcee Recordings.

“Whatever aspect it is that you’re interested in, The Josh Edmonds Memorial Scheme is a brilliant way for young talent to gain some experience of the music media industry.

“The people I met at The Ministry of Sound and the experiences I had are irreplaceable. The scheme is a fantastic career springboard. Anyone who is thinking of applying, just go for it, you’d be a fool not to”

Applications close at the end of February. Applicants are invited to submit a 200 word statement about why they want to work at The Ministry of Sound along with a link to one piece of their own work. The placement is for July. Details and application forms can be found on the Cirencester College website at www.cirencester.ac.uk.
