Sponsorship opportunities available for Collaborative Journalism Summit

We’re putting together a fabulous lineup of speakers and presenters for keynote addresses, panels and workshops at the first Collaborative Journalism Summit — and we hope you’ll join us!

The symposium, set for May 4-5 at Montclair State University, will dive deeply into collaborative reporting and cooperative news networks. Space is limited, so reserve your seat now at collaborativejournalism.org.

Sponsorship opportunities are still available for the summit; we are actively seeking supporters who believe collaborative journalism is a key component of the media industry’s transformation. The projects and case studies we’ll highlight at the conference have shown that teamwork across traditional boundaries can result in more capacity, better distribution and ultimately greater impact — the groundbreaking Panama Papers project is one example.

The summit’s audience will include media executives, researchers, philanthropists, individual journalists and representatives from various news-related organizations.

An outline of sponsorship opportunities is listed below. Please note there are many other ways to get involved as a sponsor; please contact Stefanie Murray for more information and to discuss options: murrayst@montclair.edu.
