Friday, June 10, 2016 named digital publication of the year in inaugural DPA awards was last night named digital publication of the year in the inaugural Digital Publishing Awards, presented by the National Magazine Awards Foundation. It also won in three other gold medals in other categories (see below).

The DPAs, as they'll doubtless be called, precede the long-established National Magazine Awards which take place Friday evening as the culmination of Magazines Week. Previous to  this the Magawards have endeavoured to recognize digital publishing -- as opposed to traditional print --  in a variety of ways; the latest is this new awards program. Joyce Byrne, the president of the foundation (and publisher of Avenue Calgary) said:
“The inaugural Digital Publishing Awards have been a great success. It was wonderful to have so many of Canada’s best digital creators gathered together to recognize outstanding journalism, celebrate their exceptional creativity and learn from each other. As I look at the work of the nominees and winners this year, it’s clear that digital publishing has a bright future in Canada.”
