For the COPAs, which are presented by Masthead, we’re a finalist in the following categories (B-to-B division):
- Best Online-Only Site
- Best Web Design
- Best Blog
- Best Use of Social Media
- Best E-Newsletter
- Best Mobile-Optimized Site
- Best Article or Series (for our long-form feature on Cuba’s first branded film)
At the COPAs last fall we won a record four awards and we’d be honoured to do nearly as well this year.
We’re also super excited about our first-ever Eddie nomination. The Eddies are Folio magazine’s awards for international excellence in magazine editorial. Sparksheet is a finalist for Best Online Column or Blog (B-to-B) for our Creative Director Charles Lim’s blockbuster column Print in Digital Clothing: The Problem with Magazine Apps.
It feels great to be recognized both in our home country and internationally, and for everything from our editorial and design prowess, to our social media chops (kudos to our Community Manager Joey Tanny for the latter).
It goes to show that Sparksheet has become, in just two short years, a truly multiplatform magazine brand.
The 2011 Canadian Online Publishing Awards will be handed out on October 24 at The Gladstone Hotel in Toronto. The 2011 Eddie Awards will be presented on November 1 in New York City. Hope to see you there.
