The Ember Awards

The Embers are back!

The 2021 Ember Awards are a go, and this time, we’re going virtual! We are thrilled to come together again to celebrate Alberta’s digital talent.

Over the coming months, we will be updating this page with details about the categories, submissions, tickets, and more. Stay tuned!


Award Categories

The award categories have been reimagined to cover more sectors, including IDM. Submissions will be open to projects that were completed in the last two years rather than one, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

We welcome any feedback from all members of our community on these revamped categories. Are we covering the right aspects of Alberta digital technology and interactive digital media sectors? If there was a category for your team, what would it look like? Contact us with your feedback at


Become a Sponsor

Our community has shown their support for the Ember Awards time and time again. Whether you’re a long-time supporter, new member, or an interested community stakeholder, we would welcome your financial support to put on this year’s event.

This is your opportunity to profile your business to Alberta's digital sector.

This includes, but is not limited to, members of any race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, colour, immigration status, social and economic class, education level, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, age, size, family status, political belief, religion, and mental and physical ability. 

We want to come together to celebrate the talent, hard work and passion of those living in Alberta, and help to grow the province's digital sector.
