WASHINGTON, DC — The Online News Association (ONA) and The Poynter Institute are collaborating again to offer a transformative, tuition-free leadership program to train digital media’s best and brightest women in Spring 2016.
The second ONA-Poynter Leadership Academy for Women in Digital Media, offered to 28 U.S.-based participants, will take place the week of May 2, 2016, at Poynter’s campus in St. Petersburg, Florida. The interactive, five-day program will focus on critical leadership skills specific to digital media for the industry’s next generation of women leaders.
The following is an open letter, supported by ONA and 10 media organizations, calling for discussion with performers and their management on reasonable credentialing and ownership of photos and videos for concerts:
Dear Performing Artists,
The associations and organizations listed below represent and assist thousands of photographers, reporters, editors, publishers, media entities and others dedicated to informing the public about issues that matter to their communities and personal interests.
Our members have long enjoyed a strong working relationship with the athletes and entertainers they cover, but lately that relationship is becoming strained as more and more performers (from the Foo Fighters to Janet Jackson and others in between) are making unreasonable demands for the “privilege” of covering your concerts. Sadly, the people we both are trying to serve are the ones who end up losing as a result.
