THE HONOUR AND PRESTIGE OF A COPA AWARD

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.

Division RED: Consumer market niche content and companies
Division BLUE: Business-to-business content and companies
Division GREEN: News, Sports, Business and Current Affairs content. Retailers

The prestige and honor of winning a COPA Award has grown each year, now in its 6th year, it is the only neutral industry awards shows that brings all players in the digital world together to see who is the best. New this year all media entries will have a 300 word listing on Mastheadonline.com for promotional purposes that will reach the ad community and COPA judges.

To make the COPAs an industry showcase we have added a trade show component this year – “Publishing World” that will be held at the Direct Energy Centre in Toronto Nov 22-24 to provide some great networking for the COPA participants. Publishing World will be held in conjunction with Print World and Design City.
