Here is the truth on unpaid internships, they are ILLEGAL unless:

- it is part of a UK based education course
- the intern is working for a charity or voluntary role (food and travel should be expensed)
- you are work-shadowing (ie observing an employee and not carrying work themselves)

This is the law so make sure you are being paid. Stand up for your rights. There are plenty of paid work/programs out there such as The Pipe or networks for creatives like Hiive. Sign up for our newsletter to receive weekly information on creative opportunities.
