It’s no secret: We here at The Loop are glued to our screens. Sure, it’s our job, but chances are you’re just as plugged in as we are. After all, the Great Wide Web is a formidable temptress. Well, you’re going to love this. The fine folks at the Digi Awards have just released their picks for the most innovative, most buzzworthy content of the year.

“Every year, the Digi Awards highlight some amazing projects in digital media,” says Amber Mac, Executive Producer of nextMEDIA 3.0. “There’s a wealth of Canadian talent out there and you’ll see how they work with major companies that consumers do regular business with to engage various communities and support causes they are passionate about. You will also see some familiar pieces based on some of the biggest properties in entertainment. It’s truly a reflection of the brightest in the industry.”

The 40 finalists represent apps, ads, graphics, documentaries, games, and of course, video. From Discovery.ca’s “In Search of Canada’s Rogue Shark” to YouTube favourite “Convos with My 2-Yr Old” and TSN’s hockey app, there’s something for everyone on this list.

This year’s awards ceremony will be held on November 11 at the MaRS Discovery District in Toronto, hosted by Property Brothers Jonathan and Drew Scott. So say goodbye to your productivity and hello to this year’s 2014 Digi Award nominees:
