If you've answered yes to any of the above and are aged between 18-30, then boy have we got some good news for you. Catch 22 isn't just a really hip magazine that's distributed in London every three months. It's also a training academy where aspiring journalists can learn the trade from industry professionals for a tiny fee.

The course is targeted at people who have little or no journalistic experience or training, and are struggling to get their foot in the door of a competitive industry. The Academy offers a basic grounding in print journalism, teaching trainees what to expect of the industry and how to make their mark.

And if that's not enough of an incentive, Catch 22 is funded by media sponsors such as Trinity Mirror, Haymarket and The Economist. As well as providing financial support for the programme, the media partners also offer internships to trainees who have completed the Academy, providing an important first chance to shine.

The deadline for applications to the April Academy cohort is midnight on Friday 26th March. Shortlisted applicants will then be called for interviews at the Academy's headquarters in Seven Sisters, from which 12 students will be chosen.
