Free to read: features and columns

ALLMEDIASCOTLAND.COM provides the Scots media community the opportunity to introduce itself to itself in the form of our mostly Q&A-based features.

While there are features about podcasts, kit, apps, statistics, etc, there are also features featuring Scots media practitioners.

Some are invited to recount a typical day, others to reflect on their careers. There is the chance to tell the back story to a media project plus the opportunity to thank the team and explain the thinking behind the making of something, such as a TV programme.
