The Ontario Media Development Corporation has just announced the 2011 Entertainment and Creative Cluster Partnerships Fund awards. The project that I lead – the Ontario Augmented Reality Network – was awarded $220,000 (our total budget is $360,000). The complete list of awards can be found here.

OARN brings together universities, private-sector developers, cultural agencies, trade associations, local government, and business generators dedicated to building and expanding the Augmented Reality Applications sector across Ontario. We’re going to be focusing on three pillars of activities (research, training and knowledge-sharing) in three locales: St. Catharines, London and Toronto.
