Forging the Future: Full Schedule Now Available! SPJ

On Saturday, Aug. 15, for as little as $30 for professionals and $15 for students, you can learn how to shoot broadcast-quality video from your smartphone, dazzle an employer with a digital resume, and quickly do data journalism. Oh, and you can fly a drone.

Your price of admission includes a boxed lunch in the cozy Koubek Center and a drink before the Sunshine State Awards ceremony — where winners of Florida’s premier media contest will be announced, certificates will be bestowed, and selected first-place recipients will share their secrets for assembling award-winning journalism.
