TORONTO, Ont. — An episode of trucknews.com‘s weekly WebTV show, Transportation Matters, has won the Best Video award at the second annual Canadian Online Publishing Awards, held at the Gladstone Hotel in Toronto last night.
The winning video was “DriveTest Strike Continues,” which originally aired on Nov. 26 at the height of the DriveTest strike and focused on the work stoppage’s affect on the trucking industry, combining compelling strike footage with on-site interviews.
The win was the second for Transportation Matters at the COPAs, having already won Best Video at the inaugural awards ceremony last year. Transportation Matters episodes “Going Long” and “Fun at Fergus” were also nominated in the Best Video category this year.
Trucknews.com‘s other nominations included a nod for Best Overall Website (magazine) for trucknews.com itself, and one for Best E-newsletter for executive editor James Menzies’ bi-weekly installment of “Hooked Up.”
The awards program, produced by Masthead, recognizes excellence in online editorial and innovation by Canadian magazine, newspaper, broadcast and Web site publishers.
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 new for 2010, the Green Division for daily and weekly newspapers and sites produced by broadcasters. Trucknews.com competes in the Blue Division.
