Ottawa, Ontario - November 21, 2014
The National Gallery of Canada’s online magazine NGC Magazine has won the 2014 Canadian Online Publishing Award (COPA) for Best Corporate Website. The award was presented at a ceremony in Toronto on Thursday, November 20.
“We are extremely pleased with the success of our online magazine,” said the National Gallery’s Director and CEO, Marc Mayer. “It is an effective way of sharing our collection with art lovers across the country and serves as the go-to source for information about the world of Canadian art and events taking place at the National Gallery. This award by the digital industry recognizes the value of what we’re doing.”
Launched two years ago, NGC Magazine delivers frequently updated interesting, intelligent and accessible material for both art audiences and the general public in a responsive design framework that makes it easily accessible on any device. Under Managing Editor Nina Berkhout, both in-house contributors and national correspondents present feature articles, artist interviews, studio visits, videos, photo galleries, recommendations of exhibitions, films and books, as well as behind-the-scenes views of the art world.
Founded in 2009, the COPAs are awarded each year to Canadian media publishers, corporations and advertising agencies that produce online content. Entries are judged on content, design and level of engagement, by an independent panel of digital publishing experts from Canada and the U.S. Winners are selected in 15 categories across three divisions.
