Entries are now being accepted for the 2012 Canadian Online Publishing Awards (COPA) which will be held in October. Deadline for entries is June 22.
|Now, in a book|
The awards program has been enhanced with a new "data visualization" category (e.g. interactive maps, animated infographics) and the publication of a print year book. All winners, finalists and sponsors will be published now in both an online gallery and in a book which will be distributed to all attendees of the 2012 awards. The COPAs are moving, too, to a to-be-announced downtown venue.
The awards program, produced by the publishers of Masthead, honours editorial-based online and digital publishing in 15 categories in three divisions: newspapers and broadcasters; consumer, custom, religious, and public association publishers; and business-to-business, professional association, farm, and scholarly publishers. Categories cover design, writing, and packaging, in different digital formats including websites, tablet editions, digital replicas and apps.
To be entered, work has to have been published between June 1, 2011 and June 22, 2012. Entry rules.
