We're thrilled to share some exciting news! The Vimy Foundation received a nomination as one of the Palmarès 2023 at the Numix Awards in Quebec for our project Vimy: A Living Memorial - The Digital Pilgrimage, in the cultural web production category.
The Digital Pilgrimage is a project close to our hearts. It allows visitors to experience the significance of the Vimy Memorial from anywhere in the world by offering a virtual space of remembrance where more than a century of testimonies live together, from the First World War to the war in Afghanistan. We invite all users to tell their story and discover the common links that unite us in our relationship with war and conflict.
This achievement is a testament to the dedication and passion of our team, whose tireless efforts brought this project to life. We extend our deepest gratitude to everyone involved, including our partners, supporters, and the talented individuals who contributed to this project.
Receiving this nomination at the Numix Awards not only honors our work but also highlights the power of digital projects in fostering cultural understanding and remembrance. We are grateful for the recognition and humbled to be in the company of such esteemed nominees.
We invite you to continue sharing and engaging with our project as we strive to connect people with history and promote a deeper appreciation of our shared heritage. Follow the link to explore The Digital Pilgrimage and share your story! https://livingmemorialvivant.ca/
