CPIJ sends local reporters to ONA in San Francisco – Sept. 2012

The Center for Public Interest Journalism has chosen 22 local journalists to send to this year’s Online News Association conference in San Francisco, September 20-22.

The pool of applicants was large and impressive, and in choosing sponsorees, deference was given first to individuals who did not attend last year’s conference on a CPIJ sponsorship. The Center leadership also tried to choose individuals whose work most closely reflects the mission of CPIJ: increasing the capacity for in-depth, insightful journalism about public affairs in the Philadelphia region. That said, the Center was forced to leave on the table a number of applications which reflected just that.

The attendees are:
