First off, UMFM's Winnipeg Internet Pundits is taping our usual Wednesday broadcast at 7 p.m. in the Free Press News Café at Albert and McDermot. You can still catch us in our regular slot on Wednesday's drive home or, heck, even come see us do the show live - warning: we normally record the show topless and do belly bumps after each segment ;)
Following the show you can see what the next generation of bloggers, journalists and PR hacks look like at the 2011 Creative Communications Media Awards.
Nineteen awards will be presented in a number of categories to first and second year students including Best Print Ad, Best Campaign, Best News Story and, something new, Best Blog !
Red River College's CreComm program had their current batch of students keep blogs on whatever topic they liked for the year. I was honoured to be asked to be a judge for the selections and got to check out some of their work in great detail. There's some great stuff on pretty much every topic imaginable. To see the list of blogs check out the CreComm Blog Network.
The awards begin at 8 pm at the Millennium Centre. Check out the above link for tickets info as they do have to be purchased in advance.
