RestoBiz has received two nominations for the 2018 Canadian Online Publishing Awards (COPA). These are RestoBiz’s first award nominations in its history.
The awards, presented by Masthead Online, recognize editorial and design excellence in online content, including websites, videos, photo spreads, podcasts and social media.
Awards are presented in four categories of digital publications: academic; business; consumer; and media. Kavita Sabharwal-Chomiuk’s article #metoo: Sexual harassment and complicity in the restaurant industry was nominated for Best Industry Feature in the business category. RestoBiz was also named a finalist for Best Trade Website.
“When [MediaEdge senior vice president] Chuck Nervick and his team launched RestoBiz.ca in 2016, it was always his vision to become Canada’s leading source for industry news targeting foodservice industry stakeholders,” says Kevin Brown, president of MediaEdge Communications Inc. “Simply to be nominated for the COPA awards is a tremendous honour, and a good indication that their vision has become a reality.”
This year marks the awards’ 10th anniversary. The 2018 awards will be presented at a gala event at Toronto’s Eglinton Grand on Nov. 14.
