The awards categories are designed to include companies, entrepreneurs, student and education leaders, organizations in both the government and not for profit sector, and those whose industry sectors that may not traditionally be considered in the realm of ‘digital media’, but are pioneering and raising the bar as they converge with technology. The 2014 Digital Alberta Awards ceremony will be held on Saturday July 19th at the Royal Alberta Museum in Edmonton, Alberta.
