Last chance to pitch ONA16!

Pitches to the ONA16 Suggestion Box are due tomorrow (Thursday, March 31) by 11:59 p.m. ET! Share your newsroom hacks, highlight speakers who can inspire journalists and tell us what you see on the horizon for digital journalism. Submit an idea to ONA16.

What happens after you pitch

We get a lot of great session ideas for our annual conference, and we hope to see even more before the ONA16 Submission Box closes tomorrow. Our Digital Director, Trevor Knoblich, gives you a sneak peek into how we weight conference pitches and create a uniquely innovative event for journalists.
