After two days of thought-provoking discussions at N3Con 2019, the conversation continues at the Gala Awards Night and Silent Auction on Saturday, June 1, at 7:00 pm. Tickets are available for purchase here, and AAJA members get a discount!
The Gala Awards Night will feature our second Story Slam competition! We’re excited to announce our line-up of finalists: Grace Lee, Laurel Chor, Rebecca Isjwara, and Jenny Hsu.
These four storytellers will regale guests and judges with their true tales of tragedy, comedy, and drama to compete for US$500 and other prizes in an exciting live event.
We will be also be giving thousands of dollars’ worth of awards to the winners of the Columbia Journalism School fellowship, Google Digital Award, and travel stipends.
And don’t forget to bring your wallet so you can bid on the many silent auction items ranging from hotel stays to coffee bean subscriptions. All proceeds go to AAJA-Asia to help us continue to provide scholarships, fellowships, and fantastic programming throughout the year.
The evening will be hosted by AAJA-Asia’s own Farland Chang and Angie Lau. Farland is an Emmy Award-winning journalist, producer, and entrepreneur, soon to be joining Nanjing University. Angie is a former Bloomberg TV anchor, our former AAJA-Asia chapter president, and is currently Founder and CEO of Forkast.News, a digital media platform for all things blockchain.
