The mission of the COPAs is fostering digital publishing excellence in Canada and to make it an open process to any company that produces online content in Canada to enter.
We have added new categories this year as part of this open process, as the COPAs have been restricted in the past to media publishers, any company and ad agency this year can enter the COPAs this year. The divisions have also been changed to reflect the blurred lines between traditional and digital media as to the type of content that is produced.
