The Ember Awards were created over a decade ago to celebrate the digital excellence of individuals and organizations across Alberta. Last year, our awards categories feature the best work in the province in Web Development, Education & E-Learning, Art & Content, Marketing, Gaming, Software & Devices, and Students & Schools.
This year, we want to continue celebrating these initiatives, while making it easier to highlight the works of up-and-coming individuals and groups that are diversifying Alberta’s economic and artistic opportunities. We are therefore looking to add new categories related to more technical innovations (including automation and data-driven discoveries), open up the student entry process, and celebrate the web development achievements of more specific groups and industries, including Business / Corporate / Hospitality, Government/ Education, Arts & Culture / Nonprofit, etc.
We would love your feedback! Are we including the right groups? Is there a topic within technology and innovation that we’ve left out? Please review the list below and give us your feedback on whether we got it right, or need to make some edits or additions!
We are hoping to launch the call for award submissions in early-to-mid August, so will be accepting public feedback no later than August 6.
Help us shine a spotlight on the digital innovators who are making Alberta a better place to live, create, and work in!
Also, save the date for our 2018 Ember Awards gala, which is taking place Friday, November 16 at the Matrix Hotel in Edmonton.
