CFP Reminder & Tickets on Sale

CFP Reminder & Tickets on Sale

Happy New Year, fellow documentarians!

As we get ready to start the year, we’re happy to share the latest update about the Portland conference. We are extending our call for proposals until January 31st, and tickets for the conference are officially on sale. Read on for more details on both!

Submit your talk by January 31st

As we are aware that many documentarians were away for the holidays, we’d like to give everyone an opportunity to submit their talks. The Call for Proposals will remain open until Thursday, January 31st at midnight PST. Check out the CFP page for more details about what we are looking for and how to submit your proposal.

And if you’ve already got an idea, but you’re having a hard time getting your proposal to come together, you can always ask for feedback on the WTD Slack. The community is there to help!

As always, we’re eagerly looking forward to your submissions! We’ll be reviewing all the talk proposals early February, and will be contacting everyone who submitted a proposal by 21 February, 2019.

Get your ticket for the conference

The Portland conference will be returning to the Crystal Ballroom on May 19-21, 2019. The full event website is live, with some preliminary details, and we’ll be filling in more as it gets closer. We’re already excited to see what this year has in store!

If you’re excited too, go ahead and register for your ticket now! For the past several years the conference has sold out, so we highly recommend buying early and reserving your spot.

Please make sure to register for your ticket before you book your travel! We cannot be responsible for any non-refundable travel costs, and if we reach capacity at the venue before you register, we cannot guarantee a spot for you, even if you booked your travel.

Support our community by sponsoring

Every year we are fortunate to have the support of like-minded organizations and communities, who believe in the collaborative and welcoming community spirit and help us make our events more awesome.

Following the successful launch in 2018, this year we will run the job fair again, helping documentarians and organizations connect with each other. Check out the sponsorship prospectus for more details.

Looking forward to seeing you all in Portland!
