The Extended Reality project for ReGenesis was presented with the Canadian New Media Award (CNMA) for Excellence in Cross Platform for its innovative work in combining a traditional television broadcast with an alternate reality game component, branded as an Extended Reality by producer Xenophile Media. Lead Designer, Evan Jones, was also honored with the award for Top Graduate of the Year. Congratulations to Evan and the ReGenesis team on the well deserved honors.
The fifth annual CNMA award show was held at The Carlu in Toronto on May 30, 2005 and brings together new media professionals from throughout Canada for the industry’s premier celebration for the achievements of the past year.
ReGenesis was previously honored with the FITC Design & Technology Award for Convergence. For those of you that missed the first season, you’re in luck as it will be rebroadcast this fall on Canada’s Global Television Network.
