275+ Learning Sessions

From photojournalism and design to editorial leadership and career help, this broad range of sessions has something for everyone. Pre-convention workshops, breakout sessions and keynotes will be led by local professionals and expert advisers from around the country.


During the convention, Associated Collegiate Press will present the Pacemaker Awards and College Media Association will present the Pinnacles, both recognizing the top media programs and students in the United States. You can also compete in the on-site ACP Best of Show competition.

Keynote Speakers

Three great keynotes will make this a DC convention to remember — Marty Baron, executive editor of The Washington Post; Abby Phillip, White House correspondent for CNN; and Nina Totenberg, legal-affairs correspondent for National Public Radio.
