The latest and greatest on CNN iReport, brought to you by Team iReport.
The first-ever iReport Awards weekend kicks off Friday and we are really excited to welcome iReporters from all over to CNN's world headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia.
The weekend is going to be packed with hands-on seminars, panel discussions with CNN staffers and industry leaders, and, of course, the CNN iReport Awards ceremony.
We want the entire iReport community to be a part of the experience, even though it would be impossible to have everyone here in person. We will be blogging all weekend, streaming live video of the sessions, and sharing real-time social media updates from the iReport Awards. You can keep up with all of the buzz by following the hashtag #iReportAwards on Instagram and Twitter.
On Twitter, you can also follow our iReport Awards list.
We'll post links to the live video stream on Saturday, but here's the schedule so you'll know when to watch.
10:15 a.m. ET -- Smartphones – Smart storytelling, led by Victor Hernandez
11 a.m. ET -- Creating Powerful Photographic Narratives, with Turner photographers Barbara Griffin, Michael Kochman, David Holloway and Shana Darnell
1:30 p.m. ET -- Vimeo Video School, led by Vimeo’s Andrea Allen and CNN’s Brandon Ancil
2:45 p.m. ET -- Telling Stories, Telling Truths, with CNN’s Jan Winburn, Moni Basu and John Sutter
And be sure to join us on Thurdsay, June 28, for a special edition of our iReport roundtable. We will be talking about everything we learned over the weekend.

Kudos to CNN for given birth to CNN IREPORT, news reporting was given a new meaning from the eyes of ireporters.
News reports can be sent in by those who saw events happening as they see it happened giving opportunities to expose both evil and good happening around the world.
Wishing ALL the best, with you in spirit. :)
Weekend placut, all! Wish they had cheaper and faster flights over to the US to join you!
