Hollywood has award season. Journalists have conference season. I don’t know about you, but I’d take learning about digital media, mobile content and arguments over the Oxford comma over a gold statue any day. Here are a few of the conferences we won’t be missing!
Starting the last week of March, SPJ is traveling the country through May and playing host to accomplished and aspiring journalists.
East Coasters shouldn’t miss this gathering at University of Maryland on April 4 and 5. Master data-driven data, mobile content and how to master entrepreneurship.
Head to the Twin Cities for this behemoth of a conference on March 28 and 29. Journalism heavyweights like the Northwest Broadcast News Association, Region 6 of the Society of Professional Journalists, the Minnesota Associated Press, the Upper Midwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, the Radio Television Digital News Association/Foundation and the University of Minnesota gather at this function to dole out advice and of course, network.
Hosted in Austin, from April 4-5, the ISOJ hones in on the digital content that has transformed the journalistic climate. Digital heavyweights from Vice, Vox, Racked, Gawker and Google will gather to give you insider tips on how to make the most of digital content.
