This week at the DMI
November 10, 2011
What a whirlwind few weeks the DMI has had! After attending WIFT, X-Summit, Merging Media, and BarCamp Saskatoon, we are now in the thick of the Saskatchewan's Transmedia Labs. Remember you can always follow along with what we are doing and learning on Twitter @smpiaDMI
Big congratulations to members College Mobile and Noodlecake Studios on receiving nominations at this year's Digi Awards!! These are only the 2nd and 3rd nominations of this kind for Saskatchewan people or companies and we couldn't be happier for them! The Digi Awards (formerly the Canadian New Media Awards) are Canada's premier showcase of the remarkable digital media companies, projects, products and pioneers that are putting Canada at the forefront of the international mediascape. They will be held December 6th in Toronto at the conclusion of nextMEDIA Toronto. Conference discounts for SMPIA members are still available until November 11th!
Don't miss the deadline to enter the SXSW interactive awards and/or accelerator. The SXSW Interactive Awards uncovers the best new digital work, from mobile and tablet apps to websites to kiosks and installations and beyond, while celebrating those who are building tomorrow's online trends. The 2012 SXSW Interactive Festival will take place March 9-13th in Austin, Texas.
Lastly, if you haven't filled out the DMI evaluation survey, please do as we will be closing it soon. Its important to let our funders know what you think of the program and ensure that we are making plans for this year that will make a difference to digital content production.
