Alberta’s Tech Awards Watch List

Awards and accolades can be an important part of positioning and marketing your company particularly in the tech space. Technology is moving at such a rapid pace so being able to showcase the world class solutions that are being built is essential when it comes to discoverability. Not only does it highlight exciting progress and unique applications among peers – but it’s also a way to push the limits and raise the bar when it comes to innovation across sectors. 

In the past Digital Alberta hosted the Ember Awards which was created nearly 15 years ago to celebrate digital excellence of individuals and organizations across Alberta. This year we are excited to see the growth of many events celebrating tech in our province and therefore have decided to support those adjacent award shows in an effort to reduce redundancy in the ecosystem and focus on programming for the interactive digital media sector in the province.
