2018 Session

The 2018 Business Horizons Media Camp was held July 15-19 on the campus of Central College in Pella. The students produced a website to keep fellow campgoers and others abreast of the session at http://businesshorizonsmedia.com/.

Over the course of the week, students heard from professional journalists in the areas of media basics, photography, social media, digital media, design, circulation and professional expectations. The students also had the opportunity to visit the Des Moines Register. Throughout the week, the media students covered Business Horizons activities through a website, Facebook page and Twitter. The final project for the week was a print edition of the newspaper.

The INF thanks sponsors Woodward Community Media and The Gazette Company for making this program possible.
