This year, AMPIA welcomes TELUS Optik Local as a presenting partner for the March Madness Professional Development Day. Linda Hay, Senior Business Analyst and Project Manager at TELUS Optik Local, has designed the morning program for this one-day workshop. Participants will get information from Canada’s top funding agencies and support organizations, including The National Film Board, Alberta Media Fund, Canadian Media Producers Association and STORYHIVE.
Producer and Digital Content Strategist Victoria Evans will be flying out from Toronto to host our morning keynote. With over a decade of media experience, Victoria’s career originally stemmed from traditional media covering a diverse range of production disciplines to producing digital interactive content. Her career path has led Victoria to work with great producers and talented contributors on award winning productions.

There are many types of audiences that will impact the kind of content you create. It’s not simply one singular audience to consider. In this presentation, Victoria will share some high level content strategies to improve and deliver quality results!
TELUS will also be sponsoring two networking sessions for the opening and closing reception (coffee and snacks provided for all participants, cash bar available with 1 free drink sponsored by ACTRA Alberta). Click here to register.
