If you're an editorial cartoonist or writer, ASNE hopes you'll contribute a cartoon or column for this year's Sunshine Week, March 12-18.
The special content will be made available for use that week by participating organizations to promote a dialogue about the importance of open government and freedom of information.
ASNE's First Amendment Committee leaders Joyce Terhaar, executive editor of The Sacramento Bee, and Robyn Tomlin, managing editor of The Dallas Morning News, are also working with major news organizations once again to make an ambitious reporting project available free to all participants. More on that will be announced in the coming weeks.
To submit a cartoon or column or have your organization or event listed, please send links and other information to ASNE Communications Coordinator Jiyoung Won at email@example.com. To see previous submissions, check out "The Vault" section at sunshineweek.org.
Sunshine Week 2017 is made possible by an endowment from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and by a donation from The Gridiron Club and Foundation.
ASNE launched Sunshine Week in 2005 as a national initiative. Since 2012, ASNE has partnered with the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press to provide support for news organizations, libraries, universities, civic groups, nonprofits and others who want to promote open government and access to information.
