Give your ideas an audience: Pitch a session idea to ONA17

Each year, journalists, technologists, academics and others passionate about news and media come to our conference to share exciting trends in digital journalism. Submissions will account for the majority of educational programming, so this is your best chance to get involved. We’re looking for pitches that are inspiring, instructional or both.

We’ve found that the best pitches fall into one of two categories:

  • Inspirational or aspirational, representing emerging trends, tools and ideas in journalism, or describing our field at its absolute best. OR
  • Shared expertise, with clear, specific aims for what attendees might learn.

Submit your idea to the ONA17 Suggestion Box and it could be part of the program.

Deadline: April 13 (Midnight ET)

We also have great tips about how to create a strong ONA17 proposal. Want to check out ideas others have shared? Submissions to the ONA17 Suggestion Box will be posted on the ONA17 website. Every submission to the Suggestion Box is carefully reviewed by both the ONA staff and a committee of volunteers. Follow ONAconf on Twitter and the ONA17 blog for more updates.

As ONA's head of programs and events, Trevor connects journalists to emerging tools, technology, training and resources, and leads programming for our annual conference and beyond.
