Twitter made our day at the Idea Rebel offices last Thursday. All it took was one tweet from the nextMEDIA community during their live webcast announcements for the 2012 Digi Awards nominees. Our day got even better as we watched the webcast. We were nominated twice in the same category, Best Use of Social Media!
Yup, the Digi Awards are Canada’s only national digital media awards show. And Idea Rebel had bagged two nominations in a category that awards outstanding use of Social Media for increasing awareness and community engagement with a brand, product or person. It was definitely a good day for the Rebels, thanks Twitter!
The Digi Awards are relatively new on the Canadian scene, previously they were know as the Canadian New Media Awards. nextMedia describes the Digi’s as “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”
Both of the projects that were nominated deserve kudos to the hardworking teams and the great clients that we have in our Vancouver office. The Rebel team is proud to have been nominated and hoping that we take home another award for our trophy case!
Nomination #1: West Jet first Bag Free
Nomination #2: EA Social Facebook Open Graph Video Player
