Digi Awards Submissions & diy days Toronto

Here is a look at what some of our friends have been up to lately…

Digi Awards Submissions Are Due On October 4

Is your digital media product ground-breaking and engaging in the digisphere?  Has your webseries captured the hearts of everyone around the country?  Have you elevated your company to new heights?  If you answer yes to any of those questions, you should apply for The Digi Awards!

Our friends over at nextMEDIA are looking for some awesome Canadians who are making waves in the digital media industry.  In addition to a wide spectrum of categories that cover projects in digital content, advertising, mobile, and gaming, the Digis also recognize the people and companies that make it happen.  It is a great platform to market yourself and your organization on a national scale.

All who submit will be exposed to an industry audience via a profile on the nextMEDIA website.  As a finalist, a represented will also be invited to attend the Digi Awards ceremony, held in Toronto.  Take a look at the current entries.

The Digi Awards will take place at the 2013 nextMEDIA Content & Marketing Summit on December 3rd at The Carlu in Toronto.
