Fall National College Media Convention

Associated Collegiate Press and College Media Association
are your hosts for the nation’s largest gathering of collegiate journalists and advisers.

College media’s best and brightest will meet virtually Oct. 22-24 to learn from industry experts and from top collegiate-media programs across the country.

College students and advisers seeking advice and tips about student-produced media are invited to attend. The multi-day convention, with dynamic keynote speakers, will include networking opportunities, informative panel discussions, hands-on tutorials and access to media professionals.

The event will cover all aspects of college media, from rapidly changing multimedia platforms to newspaper, broadcast, yearbook and magazine journalism. Students will also benefit from career-focused sessions with guidance on life after graduation. Advisers will be offered special programming focused on their specific challenges.

There will be more than 100 sessions at the event, and vendor sponsors and educational institutions will exhibit their services to the collegiate-media market.

Other highlights of the event include ACP and CMA’s exclusive awards programs, critiques for college media publications, and a film and audio festival and competition.

The convention was once scheduled for Atlanta, and the decision to present it virtually was announced July 9.
