Suggestion Box

We look for the biggest and boldest ideas for ONA19 and accept pitches through our Suggestion Box. Anyone can submit a proposal, which are then reviewed by our program team.

The Suggestion Box is now closed.

Each year, we aim to share best practices, practical tips and inspiring talks for journalists, executives, sales teams, educators and anyone else working in digital media.

As always, we’re looking to pull in fresh, creative ideas. We’re especially interested in sessions that don’t fit the traditional panel format.

We accept three types of ideas for the conference, and the form is the same for each:

  • A topic you think is critical, and would like ONA to tap experts to address (a suggestion in the most straightforward sense)
  • A topic you yourself would like to speak about at the conference
  • An under-the-hood look at a project you made that others might learn from

Keep in mind that these suggestions are often a starting point for discussions about topics we’ll cover at the conference. ONA will often ask presenters to refine their proposals or combine their ideas with other presenters to address a single topic. For this reason, we cap the number of speakers that can be included at two, and can expand on that if your idea is selected.
