CPIJ sponsorship program for Online News Association conference
UPDATED – This application is now closed. Original post:
The Center for Public Interest Journalism at Temple University is pleased to provide the opportunity for up to 18 members of the local public interest news and information community to attend the Online News Association conference in Boston, MA from September 22 – 24. CPIJ will provide funding to cover conference registration, hotel, travel and a per diem for food for participants.
We’re excited about this opportunity because the conference has been helpful to past participants in gathering best practice information, learning about innovation in the field, and establishing connections with journalists and news gatherers from around the country working on similar issues.
- Be a professional journalist or use professional journalism standards in news gathering
- Focus on public interest news and information gathering in the Greater Philadelphia area
- Be an active participant in the Philadelphia public interest news community
- Be able to attend the entire conference
Because of limited space, only one applicant per organization will be able to receive an award. Preference in selection will be given to participants in the Networked Journalism Collaborative process, which helped generate the concept for the Center for Public Interest Journalism and its project, the Philadelphia Public Interest Information Network, but all are encouraged to apply.
- News Organization (if applicable)
- URL/handle (if applicable)
- Contact info (email/phone/address)
- Link to relevant work samples (please do not send attachments)
The application process is open now, and applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, so those interested are encouraged to apply immediately. Applicants will be informed of their application’s status by August 19, 2011, and we will post here when all sponsorships have been awarded.
This program is funded by the Center for Public Interest Journalism as part of its mission to support professional development in the region’s public interest news and information community.
