Hey y’all writers, bloggers and photographers. Summer is in full swing, but autumn is coming quickly and bringing CMJ Music Marathon & Film Festival along. Press requests are now open, so get a head start by applying for credentials here.

Not involved in media? Now worries! There’s still plenty of room for CMJ volunteers. Applications are open here.

What’s in store for CMJ 2011? Well, CMJ 2010 was filled with timely panels staffed by industry pros, continuing legal education of the music persuasion, non-stop shows (with the occasional special guest), Broadway musicals, a plethora of films and, of course, special programming for the college radio contingent. Expect all the same and much more in October 2011, when CMJ Music Marathon & Film Festival comes to a New York City near you.

CMJ Music Marathon & Film Festival 2011 takes place October 18-22 in New York City. Attendees register here.
