What’s in store for ONA23

With community input, we are designing two types of programming for the Online News Association Annual Conference (#ONA23). Our in-person event in Philadelphia (Aug. 23–26) will focus on interactivity and conversational learning, while a virtual event designed specifically for online participants will take place Sept. 28-29

Beyond the innovative conference sessions, workshops and networking events, our gathering in Philadelphia will conclude with the 2023 Online Journalism Awards ceremony (#OJA23), a celebration of the world’s best work in digital journalism from the past year.

Interested in sponsoring the conference? See all of the options and contact Jessica Strelitz for more information.
