iReport Awards weekend: Thank you!

Thank you to everyone -- iReporters, special guests, and CNN staffers alike -- who were part of the CNN iReport Awards weekend in Atlanta. We have dreamed about hosting a real-life conference and celebration with iReporters for years now, and to witness it become a reality was indescribably awesome. We only hope that this year's attendees learned as much from the sessions as we learned from them. It was so inspiring to hear everyone's ideas and enthusiasm about iReport and the future of citizen journalism.


For those of you who missed the action, you can check out a recap of the day on our Awards weekend live blog, and learn more about the 2nd Annual iReport Awards recipients on We'll also be hosting a special edition of the iReport roundtable here on the blog this Thursday at 2:30 p.m. ET to answer any questions you may have about the event and share some of our favorite moments from the weekend.


Congrats to the Award recipients, nominees, and everyone who was part of this magical weekend. We're already looking forward to next year's iReport Awards, and can't wait to make it even better.
