AAJA-SF is excited to announce that we are hosting the 2015 National AAJA Convention! Although itâ€™s a year away, plans are already underway to make sure the Bay Area gives our colleagues from the rest of the country (and Asia!) the best experience possible.
AAJA-SF will present a promotional video of next yearâ€™s convention this August at the national convention in Washington D.C., and weâ€™ve decided to do a bit of crowd-sourcing for our video.
The idea, inspired by AAJA National President Paul Cheung, is a parody of the viral video â€œ#SELFIE,â€ by The Chainsmokers (AKA â€œBut first, let me take a selfieâ€).
For the next two weeks, AAJA-SF is gathering #AAJAselfie photos/video for our convention video. Weâ€™d really love to see members taking selfies at their favorite Bay Area landmarks or in their newsrooms/offices, but most of all, we want to include as many members as possible. So, please, got out there and take those selfies. Tag them #AAJAselfie and have fun! Put them on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or just email them to us.
Weâ€™ll take whatever selfies are taken by July 28th and put them in our video. If you have any questions, contact 2015 Convention Co-chairs Donna Tam and Kevin Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
Need some ideas? Here’s a few Bay Area “landmarks” we’d love to see photos of:
