May 28th 2007, is the Canadian New Media Awards self-proclaimed Nerds Night Out. A gala awards show hosted by Debra Digiovanni takes place at the Carlu starting at 8pm.
There are a variety of award categories for both new media projects as well as companies and individuals. Check the CNMA site for a complete list of categories and finalists.
I know many of you out there are freelancers or small studios so the $75 ticket price might be a a bit rich for your blood. However, if you are keen on being in the know about the key players in the Canadian new media industry it's probably worth the money to attend. Plus the after-parties at these events are always great networking opportunities.
For those of you just interested in who wins and what projects are worth checking out, I'll be posting again Tuesday after the show.
