Celebrating the great work performed by CCSA Member companies across Canada
2021 CONTEST CATEGORIES:
Public Voting Categories
Our panel of judges will review the nominees in each of the above categories and provide a shortlist of four nominations per category. The top four nominations in each category will be made available for public voting and winners will be determined by popular vote.
The winners of these categories will be determined by the Tuned-in Canada judging panel. Judges are asked to evaluate the nominations in each category (using specific criteria) and provide a mark out of 100.
We’re launching a new campaign website for Tuned-in Canada 2019 that will offer a fresh look, improved responsiveness on smart phones and tablets, and a searchable blog, which will give us the opportunity to properly archive all the great stories we’ve captured over the years.
We’re launching a new voting tool on our website this year, which will give us some exciting new functionality and more convenience.
Details to come!
The Canadian Communication Systems Alliance (CCSA) represents more than 110 independent companies providing internet, TV & telephone services to hundreds of thousands of Canadians in communities generally outside urban markets, from coast to coast. CCSA members include community cooperatives, family businesses, municipalities, and companies owned by Indigenous Peoples. They work and invest in their communities and their relationship to their community isn’t just business – they live there.
Canada’s smaller internet, TV & telephone providers fill a number of important roles in our communities. In rural areas, they are sometimes the only source of communications services and content – providing a crucial link to the news, entertainment, and business services Canadians expect. In today’s world of consolidation and cost-cutting, we sure get a lot of news and stories from the big cities, don’t we? Local providers reflect the communities they serve in the content they produce for their own channels. They tell the kind of stories that build community identity and pride of place, keeping these communities on the map. These are companies that are truly Tuned-In to their customers and their communities. We think these are attributes worth celebrating, and businesses worth supporting.
Tuned-In Canada is a special kind of win. Winners in each category get to take home a trophy for their excellent work. A cash prize of $1,000 is also donated to a community charity or organization of the winner’s choice. It’s an award that is making a difference.
