Three projects I am involved with have been nominated for three Canadian Online Publishing Awards.
The projects are finalists in the video, community and blog categories.
The awards recognize excellence in online editorial and innovation by Canadian magazine, newspaper, broadcast and website publishers. The winners will be announced on Oct. 20 at the Gladstone Hotel in Toronto.
My blog, Reportr.net on trends in media, society and technology, is a finalist for the “best blog” in the business/scholarly category
The joint CBC Radio 3 and journalism school project, the Canadian Music Wiki, is a finalist in the “community feature” consumer category.
The Canadian Music Wiki was created by UBC journalism graduate Amanda Ash as part of her Masters of Journalism degree. The project was supervised by CBC Radio 3 director Steve Pratt and UBC journalism assistant professor Alfred Hermida, with the financial support of MITACS Accelerate.
And a student video I supervised is a finalist in the “best video” in the consumer category for videos on the student publication, TheThunderbird.ca.
The nominated video by journalism student Daniel Hallen provided an informative and witty look at the debate over the backyard chickens in Vancouver.
