25th January 2008 by Maura McHugh

FÁS Screen Training Ireland has announced two special bursaries each worth €10,500 to attend the Entertainment Masterclass.

The deadline for applications for the Entertainment Masterclass is the 3rd of March 2008. Applicants who are successful in securing places on the Master Class will be considered for bursaries.

The Entertainment Masterclass, a one-year part-time advanced training programme, is aimed at developing a Format Academy for the entertainment television industry. In a unique education programme, a select circle of talent will learn the craft and business of formatting from leading figures in international entertainment television.

Renowned creators, producers, managers, distributors and lawyers offer lectures, presentations and one-on-one sessions that give invaluable insights about how the business runs, directing the participants through the process of developing, pitching, casting, producing, scheduling, marketing and distributing a format.

The participation fee for the full programme, including hotel accommodation and full board, is €15,000.
