The Canadian Online Publishing Awards were handed out last night, celebrating the best in digital media.
Last night at the Gladstone Hotel, the best and brightest in online publishing gathered for the third annual Canadian Online Publishing Awards, organized by industry magazine Masthead. As a finalist in four categories, Torontoist was stoked to be there, and, when the night was over, we skipped home as gold winners for best news coverage, best blog, and best online-only site in the red division (consumer).
Congrats to all the winners, especially our friends at OpenFile—who won gold and silver in the best online-only article or series for their work on “The Poppy File” and “Toronto Votes“—and the Toronto Standard, gold winners for best video/multimedia feature and best web design. And congrats also to our St. Joseph Media friends, including Toronto Life, who won silver for best cross-platform initiative, best companion website, and best e-newsletter; 20 Minute Supper Club, who won gold for best e-newsletter; Quill & Quire, who won gold for best news coverage and silver for best companion website in the blue division (business-to-business). The biggest winner of the night was Sparksheet, who won seven golds in the blue division. Seven!
