TORONTO, Ont. — Trucknews.com has won the Best Video award at the first-ever Canadian Online Publishing Awards. The awards program, produced by MastheadOnline magazine, recognizes excellence in online editorial and innovation by Canadian magazine and Web site publishers. The award ceremony was held at the Gladstone Hotel in downtown Toronto last night.
Entrants were judged in two divisions: the red division for consumer, custom, religious, and public association Web sites and the blue division, for business-to-business, professional association, farm, and scholarly Web sites. Trucknews.com bested other Best Video competitors in the blue category for its weekly WebTV show, Transportation Matters. Video features were judged on how they serve their intended audience, through their educational, entertainment and production values.
Transportation Matters has become a popular feature on Trucknews.com since it premiered in September 2007. The trucking-focused show is designed to combine humour, information and insight to provide a thought-provoking and entertaining addition to Truck News’ print product.
Past episodes have included interviews with key executives, coverage of industry conferences and events, new product launches, personality profiles, facility tours, vital industry statistics, as well as lighter fare, such as a simulator test drive, exercise video and behind-the-scenes TMTV bloopers.
Trucknews.com was also a finalist in the biggest COPA award category of the night: Best Overall Magazine Web Site. Trucknews.com was the only transportation magazine to be recognized in any award category.
