marblemedia and Corus Entertainment have joined forces to pay recognition to up and coming talent at Ryerson University in Toronto as they present graduate student Afzal Huda with the Innovative Storytellers Award.
“Afzal has a great vision of Canadian culture and the impact new media will have on it,” said Mark Bishop and Matt Hornburg, marblemedia partners and Ryerson alumni. “We are proud to honour him with this grant and to help mentor him in his career.”
Winners are chosen through an application process and receive a grant which includes a series of one-on-one sessions with industry executives from Corus Entertainment and marblemedia to gain insights into the business as well as guidance for their thesis. Mentors are selected from the areas of creative production, broadcasting, technology, legal, sales and marketing.
