The latest and greatest on CNN iReport, brought to you by Team iReport.
By now, you may have heard the exciting news: The iReport Awards are getting bigger. This year, for the first time ever, we’re hosting a weekend-long event and celebration at the CNN Center and surrounding locations in Atlanta, Georgia, from June 22-24.
The weekend events will include exciting opportunities for a select group of attendees to meet and mingle with CNN staffers and the iReport team, sessions designed to share journalism experiences and discuss the changing media landscape, and – of course – a fabulous iReport Awards ceremony. The iReport Awards weekend is a way for CNN to demonstrate its commitment to participatory journalism and the amazing stories we’re able to find and cover and share thanks to the iReport community. You can find out more here.
Attendance to the iReport Awards weekend is limited, but there are a select number of slots available that will be filled via an application process. Attendees will be responsible for booking their own transporation and accommodations.
If you’re interested in being part of the inaugural group of iReport Awards weekend attendees, please send an email to CNN.iReport.Awards@turner.com and include the following information:
1. Your full name and age
2. Your iReport screen name (if applicable)
3. Tell us why you’re interested in attending the Awards weekend, and what you hope to contribute.
We will accept email submissions through 11:59 p.m. ET on Sunday, June 3, and will contact attendees shortly afterward. If you have questions about the weekend events or application process, please feel free to share them in the comments below.
