Deadline for Submissions: EIJ18 Call for Programs and Ideas

The Excellence in Journalism Conference -- a collaboration between RTDNA and SPJ -- is ramping up planning, and we need your help to make it happen. The Call for Programs and Ideas is open and taking your thoughtful input on what you want to see at the conference.

But hurry, because the Call for Programs closes on January 18, 2018. That's right, the conference is September 27-29 in Baltimore, but the window to submit programming proposals closes in January.

Why is that? With so many ideas and so much to plan, it takes a lot of time and energy from hard-working volunteers (and staff) at RTDNA and SPJ to make it happen.

So get your ideas and program proposals ready -- and get all the information below about how to submit your programming idea.

SPJ will award scholarships to the Excellence in Journalism conference in memory of Terry Harper, SPJ's executive director from 2002 to 2009. Terry passed away on June 2, 2009 after a two-year battle with brain cancer. At the young age of 45, he left behind a loving wife, two teenage sons and an SPJ family that loved and respected him.

In honor of Terry's lasting efforts to improve SPJ and the entire journalism community, the Sigma Delta Chi Foundation set up a memorial fund following his death. With a generous outpouring of support, the Society can now proudly provide scholarships to SPJ members to attend its annual convention.
