Yesterday evening marked the inaugural debut of National Digital Media Day, which saw members of New Media Manitoba, the Society of Graphic Designers of Canada (Manitoba Chapter), Flash in the Peg, and the International Game Developers Association band together to celebrate at the Pastry Castle in the Exchange.
Kevin Hnatiuk of New Media Manitoba was on-hand to welcome all the guests who turned out to the event (Kevin, along with a group of local volunteers played a huge role in organizing the event, thanks to you all!). The Honourable Jim Rondeau (Minister of Science, Technology, Energy and Mines), made a brief presentation, welcomed the enthusiastic crowd, and introduced the keynote speaker, Robert L. Peters, FGDC. This event wouldn't have been possible without the Ministries' support so, many thanks! Rob's keynote presentation was entitled 'Do the Thing Right'.
People stuck around after the presentation, had a few beverages, mingled and chatted on the patio (all the while, enjoying the beautiful Manitoba Fall evening)... a good time was had by all. You can see more images from the event on the GDC Manitoba Flickr Group.
