Save the sightseeing for tourists, you came to the CMA Annual Convention to get your hands dirty and tell a story that can only be told in such a dynamic environment as NYC. Mentors and seasoned journalists Theta Pavis and Mike Wagner invite student journalists of all platforms to compete in the Iron Reporter competition. This interactive and immersive experience for individuals or smalls teams provides an experience unlike any other offered at the convention: a chance to publish meaningful journalism in a competitive yet cooperative experience. Don’t worry if you’re not familiar with New York: we’ve got people to help you find a compelling story and coach you along the way. Participants will have their work published, some will be honored, and one will be chosen by judges to be deemed worthy of the ultimate prize: the title of Iron Reporter.
Entry to participate is free, however students need to bring and use their own equipment. Students are strongly encouraged students to pre-register for the event as walk-ins cannot be guaranteed entry. For more details on how to do this, search #ironreporter on Twitter as the conference approaches. Make sure you attend the information meeting Thursday morning to get all the details you need to make your mark in New York City.
