Want to speak at ONA17? We accept pitches through the Suggestion Box, our way of generating ideas from the community to help us organize a great conference. Anyone can submit a proposal, and it’s never too early to get started crafting your ideas.
Each year, we aim to share inspiring ideas and best practices for newsrooms and journalism schools around the world. We also discuss solutions to a variety of challenges faced by journalists, executives, sales teams, educators, students and anyone else who works in the digital journalism space.
As always, we’re looking to pull in fresh, creative ideas. We’re especially interested in sessions that don’t fit the traditional panel format.
Consider the following questions when formulating your proposal:
- Who is your target audience, and what would they walk away with once your session is over?
- What solutions to common issues have you been working on that other newsrooms might also be able to adapt to their work?
Keep in mind that these suggestions are often a starting point for discussions about topics we’ll cover at the conference. ONA will often ask presenters to refine their proposals or combine their ideas with other presenters to address a single topic.

The deadline for Suggestion Box submissions is April 13, 2017.
