Canadian Online Publishing Awards to be presented in Toronto Thursday night

The Canadian Online Publishing Awards (COPA) will be presented Thursday night at the Phoenix Concert Theatre, 410 Sherboure Street in Toronto. Cocktail reception 5:30 - 7:30 pm; awards program 7:30 to 10 pm. The event is produced by Masthead magazine. 

Single tickets are $35 plus HST online in advance; $45 at the door.

This year the awards have introduced "best editorial packaging" to recognize work meeting the highest journalistic standards in a multiplatform digital world. "Best video content" is now a separate category. And there will only be one ad-related category "best online campaign" this year. There is also an award to recognize smaller publishers, defined as having fewer than 20 staff, the "independent publisher of the year", sponsored by Reader's Digest. The winner is pulled from all individual entries. 

[Last year's big winners were St. Joseph Media who hauled in 11 medals (6 gold and 5 silver). In second was IT World Canada with 7 medals (5 Gold and 2 Silver) and a tie for third with 5 was Rogers Media  and TC Media  (2 Gold and 3 Silver each).]

Finalists in all categories
