As the premier gathering of highly engaged digital journalists who are shaping the future of media, ONA’s annual conference is a global journalism festival offering interactive panels, workshops and networking events with some of the most innovative minds in digital news media, including audience and analytics professionals, news product, strategy and business executives and entrepreneurs.

Pitch session ideas and speakers

Each year, the ONA conference seeks to share best practices, practical tips and inspiring talks for those working in journalism. The ONA22 Suggestion Box is your opportunity to pitch ideas and speakers. Pitches to the Suggestion Box are a starting point for brainstorming and discussion among submitters and the program team. Everyone is welcome to submit, and most of the conference programming emerges from these pitches from the community. Submissions to the Suggestion Box are due April 21, 9 p.m. EDT (01:00 UTC). Explore resources for crafting your pitch.

Sponsor the ONA22 conference

ONA’s supporters play an important role in how conference attendees connect, learn and discover new technologies and tools. As ONA22 will be both in person and online, we have developed hybrid opportunities to showcase sponsors and their important work, and network and connect directly with all attendees. ONA22 sponsor packages include options for sponsored sessions and workshops, hosting networking events and promoting your group in a variety of ways.

Learn more about ways to connect with ONA’s global audience—both leading up to and during ONA22. For questions or to discuss sponsorship opportunities, contact Jessica Strelitz, Chief Strategic Partnerships Officer, at jessica@journalists.org.

Health and safety

The well-being of the ONA community is our top priority. After a two-year pause on in-person events, we successfully hosted our first conference in October 2021, for which ONA developed a comprehensive safety protocol informed by COVID-19 guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), local public health developments, association-specific resources and consultation with events and public health experts. We intend to do the same for ONA22 and will share information as it is available with our community.
