It was a night to remember, the brass horn grooves from InFunkstignation, the vivaciousness and wit of Emcee Camilla DiGiuseppe, the paparazzi snapping glamour shots and the champagne flowing… it was indeed an evening of Old World Hollywood style glamour… made even better by recognizing the “Best In Breed”of Alberta’s Digital Media industry. The Honourable Lindsay Blackett, Minister of Culture and Community Spirit even delivered our Outstanding Achievement Award!
