Early-bird registration for the 2011 College Media Convention Oct. 26-30 in Orlando is fast approaching, so if you're still on the fence of whether to spend that travel money, a few reminders for you about what's in store.
Keynoters include journalists in the middle of the news, who will talk about some important news buzzwords such as visuals, social media and personality journalism.
- Patrick Farrell, a photographer at the Miami Herald, who won the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for breaking news photography from Haiti
- Mark Russell, the editor of the Orlando Sentinel who directed the Casey Anthony trail coverage
- Vadim Lavrusik, the journalist program manager at Facebook
And the sessions. All the sessions. But first the workshops.
The early-bird workshops are on Wednesday and Thursday and include well-known journalists as Tim Harrower, who will talk about how to "Futurize the News."
And some are led by our well-known advisers including Spoon, Koz and Robedee.
The sessions are too numerous to list here, but there are tracks for new advisers, career development as well as all the sessions your students need to make your news organization better.
Some extras for advisers are the nightly receptions and the Hall of Fame breakfast.
Special events for students are the career fair and critique sessions.
Really, there is too much to mention here, but find the whole PDF of information here
And the early-bird deadline? It is Oct. 11.
The hotel deadline is today -- Sept. 27.
So get off the fence, meet us in Orlando for some magic.
