Heads up, bloggers. The V3 Digital Media Conference, presented by AAJA-LA, returns to Los Angeles for a unique gathering dedicated to AAPI online journalists, creative social media communicators and those interested in engaging on digital platforms. It's happening June 21 at the Japanese American National Museum.

The conference kicks off with an Opening Awards Reception honoring NBC News' Ann Curry with the "Vision Award," Los Angeles Times food critic Jonathan Gold with the "Visibility Award," and singer Judith Hill with the "Voice Award."
