Photo promoting free wi-fi at Keystone Centre shortlisted

Westman Communications Group has some exciting news to share.

The local cable, internet and telephone service provider has been shortlisted for the Tuned-In Canada contest category "Best Photo: Connecting Canadians". 

WCG Marketing Manager Courtney Baxter describes the photo they submitted in the contest.

"Westman recently entered a partnership with the Keystone centre to offer free wi-fi throughout their complex and what this picture really represents is that partnership and what it does for the building and the many people who attend events in the building," Baxter said. 

Shortlisted nominees will be published on the Tuned-in Canada website for nationwide voting which opens Tuesday, May 7, 2019 and closes May 17, 2019.

Winners will be determined by popular vote.

Baxter explains Westman's entry which features two Brandon Wheat Kings, standing in front of Westoba Place holding a free wi-fi sign.

"The Wheat Kings are a staple in the Keystone Centre with Westoba Place being their home, so having a couple representatives from the team holding that sign really represents the partnership the team has with the building and WCG," Baxter said.

Winners in all categories will be announced on Wednesday, May 29th and celebrated at the annual CCSA Connect conference in Kelowna on Monday, September 16th. 

Winners will receive $1,000 to donate to a community charity of their choice.

Tuned-In Canada 2019, is a nationwide, annual competition that highlights the great work performed by CCSA members - independent, local providers of internet, television and telephone services across Canada.
