What notion of their future job do young arts managers have? What visions of the arts sector are driving them? And what are the issues they want to find new solutions for? These are important questions that show how the arts sector can and should develop to be ready for future challenges and the changing needs of their audience. For that reason, we decided that with this issue of Arts Management Quarterly we wanted to give those among the participants of the first Young Arts Journalism Awards (YAJA) - a project powered by Art News Portal, fostering online journalism among journalism and creative art students worldwide - who dedicated their articles to the field of arts management the chance to get a word in edgeways.
YAJA is a project by Art News Portal to foster art journalism among journalism and creative art students worldwide. It gives students who found their love for journalism the opportunity to showcase their talent in capturing art and culture in a creative way.

To date, an ever-growing amount of digitised collections including moving images and cinema related material is widely dispersed across Europe. Domain specific research across the various repositories, institutions and countries is still lacking.
Initiated by ACE (Association des Cinémathèques Européennes) and the Europeana Foundation, the EFG project develops an online portal providing direct access to about 700,000 digital objects including photos, posters, film set drawings, newsreels, feature and short films as well as various text documents such as film programmes and censorship cards. Content is mainly provided by 15 European film archives and cinematheques, which are partners in the project. The collections to be made accessible have been selected to serve as a sample representing the actual digitised content held in the film institutions.
