SwerveCalgary, a city lifestyle web portal and community news site published in-house by the Calgary Herald, won the Best Digital Start-up award at the 2011 Digital Alberta Awards. The site features original video, audio and photo galleries, and is designed to be a digital space for connecting Calgarians. The site was launched last December, having evolved from an original print publication of the same name over some six years of print production. Not resting on their laurels, the site publishers are already talking about the ‘next evolution’ of Swerve, as it continues to move from its print origins to become an full online media centre, with names like Swerve TV or Swerve Radio being included in the mix. You’ll want to check out next month’s Alberta media profile on Shelley Youngblut, the publication’s editor and University of Calgary graduate.
