Today has been an exciting news day (#RobFord) but tonight is also a big night for online news organizations in Canada.
Tonight at The Hoxton in Toronto, the 2013 Canadian Online Publishing Awards will be handed out.
I’m so excited to state that the Toronto Star has been given seven finalist nominations.
- Thestar.com for best companion website and best website design
- best blog (Toronto Star Photo Blog)
- Best multimedia/video (Stella Joy)
- Best cross-platform initiative
- Best infographics
And last but not least, best online-only article or series of articles for the ORNGE ebook produced by Star Dispatches! That’s a subscriber-based weekly ebook program that I had the privilege of working on for six months. The ORNGE ebook by Kevin Donovan was the first one produced but you can find the entire library here.
