MediaFest22 – Fall Annual Conference

It was an exceptional convention. Thanks to all those that attended. 

Our fall convention returned to the nation’s capital to celebrate, to collaborate and to learn from some of the nation’s top journalists.

It included a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear from Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein — on the 50th anniversary of the Watergate break-in.

Few journalists have influenced American history as profoundly. Their Washington Post reporting eventually led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon, and it set new standards for investigative journalism.

Their keynote was at 11 a.m. Friday, Oct. 28.

Our keynote speakers are one of the benefits of a special partnership.

This year, the Fall National College Convention transformed into MediaFest22, as Associated Collegiate Press and College Media Association join with the Society of Professional Journalists for a shared convention at the Grand Hyatt Washington.

MediaFest22 offered dozens of educational sessions, exciting awards celebrations, helpful critiques and an opportunity to interact with editors, journalists and fellow media students and advisers from across the nation.

Take a look at the official schedule here that includes session descriptions, speakers, times, dates and more!

Save the date for our next convention in New York City March 8-11, 2023. More details will be shared soon.
