ONA Weekly #412: Apply To Be An OJA Screener

By on June 1, 2022

Apply to be an OJA screener!

Each year we select a diverse set of digital media professionals who helps us discover the most inspiring work to honor in the Online Journalism Awards. More than 170 volunteer screeners lend their expertise to kickstart the review process for the awards, getting to know 25-30 entries each and making recommendations for semifinalists.

Screeners represent all aspects of the industry, from local news leaders to product managers, broadcast journalists, data analysts and more. This is one of ONA’s most popular volunteer opportunities, and it’s open to journalism professionals around the world. Apply by June 9.
