‘Tis the season to eat, drink and be merry! Join us as we celebrate the end of another news cycle at the annual ONA NYC Holiday Party at WeWork SoHo Lounge. Festive dress is encouraged!
All local journalists are welcome to network with members of the Online News Association, Asian American Journalists Association, and The Deadline Club. For $15, you’ll enjoy some great company, an open bar, and yummy food.
A special thanks to our generous sponsors, National Geographic and NewsCred, for helping make this event possible!

Feel that chill in the air? It certainly can’t be winter in Austin, so it must be time for our annual Austin Web Bash (#awbash). Join us Tuesday, December 10, for Austin’s biggest year-end gathering of web folks. Last year we had more than 800 attendees! This year, we have a bigger space and expect an even bigger turnout. Hang out with members of dozens of tech and web meetups from around town. Catch up with old friends, and make some new ones.
Admission: Donate online or in person. Suggested donation is $5. 100% of proceeds go to the Caporal Assistance Network, a nonprofit focusing on fertility preservation for young adults in Central Texas who have been diagnosed with cancer.
NEW THIS YEAR: To make this year’s event even better, we’ve streamlined our charitable donation process and are accepting only cash donations. RSVP on Ticketbud to donate in advance, then simply check-in for your drink wristband when you arrive.
We have $1 million to support live news experiments.
The goal of the new Challenge Fund is to hack journalism curriculum in higher education using customized version of the teaching hospital model. We want to fund projects that encourage more collaborative local news coverage, bridge academic and professional gaps, better train students and provide lessons from digital-age news experiments.
