The media needs more diverse sources. Are you one of them? Join the AAJA Media Institute for an intense two-day workshop that will coach you on how to tell your story and share your expertise with the media.

Now in its third year, the Media Institute is produced by the Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) and led by a team of award-winning journalists. Our goal is to train thought leaders and sources, bringing more diverse voices to the conversation.

Since our inaugural workshop in 2014, AAJA Media Institute alumni have gone on to appear on localand national television, including C-SPANMSNBC and NBC’s Today Show. They have published editorials. They have been featured in major news publications. And they have contributed to the national debate on healthcare, the economy, politics and more.

Participants will learn how to tell your story in print, television and online formats. You will learn how a newsroom operates, get tips on becoming camera-ready and practice answering tough interview questions. By the end of the boot camp, you will also leave with a professional headshot and a video clip that showcases your expertise.

The registration fee is $1,500 per person. The application process is competitive and space is limited; you are encouraged to register as soon as possible. AAJA reserves the right to deny registration and sponsorship, to any individual or company, that may result in a conflict of interest for our organization.

*Please be aware that participants will be responsible for their own transportation and lodging during the program. Email with questions.
