Digital Press Awards announce winners
19th June 2009
The winners of the two brand new digital press awards were announced last night at the Midlands Media Awards dinner, organised by the Press Club. Huge congratulations go to Rhubarb Radio who wone the Birmingham City Council Digital Innovation Award, for their pioneering work in bringing volunteers from a whole variety of creative industries and social media groups to experiment with engaging both local and international audiences.
The winner of the Online Campaign – People’s Choice Award (voted by the people) was wone deservedly by the New Facebook – Black Country Version Group. Donato Esposito who engineered the campaign, took a humerous stance at how Facebook’s new version could help raise the profile of local groups.
Birmingham City Council and Digital Birmingham played a vital part in ensuring the press awards reflected the huge changes in traditional reporting and media activity over the past few years. If you have any ideas how we can push the boundaries even further for next year, please let us know
