Sponsorship opportunities

Associated Collegiate Press offers exceptional opportunities for sponsors to engage with ACP members.

Who sponsors ACP events?

Companies with goods and services for student-media groups.

Educational institutions marketing to attendees.

Organizations seeking to connect with student journalists.

Headlining our events is the nation’s largest gathering of collegiate journalists and their advisers — the National College Media Convention.

With ACP’s convention partner, College Media Association, the convention serves hundreds of attendees with more than 350 practical and professional learning sessions, from high-profile keynotes to specific, problem-solving breakouts, hands-on workshops and discussion groups.

Recent conventions have adapted to virtual presentations. For on-site conventions, the primary gathering space for the convention is its exhibit hall, with prime space for sponsors, who can expand their reach through social-media sponsorships.

Each convention reaches a crescendo with ACP’s awards presentations, including the prestigious Pacemaker Awards, Individual Awards and a convention Best of Show competition.

ACP teams with additional organizations in its two other national conventions.

ACP also serves its membership with a national summer workshop. The College Media Mega Workshop, from July 19-30, offers two weeks of virtual sessions in multiple different tracks, with additional a la carte sessions on workshop Fridays. Sponsoring with ACP is College Media Association.

The workshop has served hundreds of collegiate journalists and advisers on site in Minneapolis in July. The 2021 workshop, through virtual instruction, will reach collegiate journalists and advisers who may not have been able to attend an on-site gathering.
