NABJ Convention is back in New Orleans and we’re geeked! The last time NABJ was in New Orleans was back in 2012. We had just started our website and just getting used to navigating the Black professional scene. But now we’ve grown so much! But enough about us, it’s all about the NABJ Convention! We know there’s plenty of workshops going on all week. More importantly, I’m sure you’re interested in the lagniappe. We love NABJ and all that it offers, but what’s a trip to New Orleans without the best eats, after hours spots, local bars and places off the beaten path that really make New Orleans the best city in the World!

Reuters hosting Instagram contest during 2017 NABJ convention
This week, Reuters will kick off an Instagram contest during the 2017 National Association of Black Journalists convention in New Orleans, Louisiana. Attendees of the NABJ convention are invited to take part in the social media storytelling competition by sharing their food adventures in the Big Easy.
To enter, attendees should follow the @Reuters Instagram account and share a multi-pic and/or video post of their food journey during the NABJ convention, using #ReutersatNABJ and tagging @Reuters in the caption. Entries will be judged on the creativity of their story-telling, as well as the number of likes.
Three winners will be announced on Friday evening and will go home with an Amazon Echo or Dot.
