TORONTO, Ont. — An episode of trucknews.com’s WebTV show Transportation Matters has won a silver award in the Best Video or Multimedia Feature category at the third annual Canadian Online Publishing Awards. The awards, held this year at the Gladstone Hotel in Toronto Oct. 24, are produced by Masthead, and recognize excellence in online editorial and innovation by Canadian magazine, newspaper, broadcast and Web site publishers.
The silver-winning episode was “Big Beer Run,” which originally aired last winter and chronicled Challenger Motor Freight’s 10-day trek across the GTA hauling six massive beer tanks for Molson-Coors. Also nominated in the same category were “Fergus Truck Show 2010” and “Thanks a Million,” giving Transportation Matters three of the five nominations up for Best Video. The award was Transportation Matters’ third win at the COPAs, having taken home the top prize in the Best Video category in the award program’s first two years.
Trucknews.com’s other nomination came in the form of executive editor James Menzies’ bi-weekly newsletter “Hooked Up” in the Best E-Newsletter category.
Entries were judged in three divisions: the Red Division for custom, religious, and public association Web sites; the Blue Division, for business-to-business, professional association, farm, and scholarly Web sites; and the Green Division for daily and weekly newspapers and sites produced by broadcasters. Trucknews.com competes in the Blue Division.
