(TORONTO, CANADA) -- The EMMA Foundation, a British-based not for profit organization which encourages the creative, technical and professional development of digital media on a worldwide basis, today released its list of finalists for the Electronic Multimedia Awards (EMMAs).

The winners will be announced on the EMMA web site at EMMA-Foundation.org at the end of November.
"This year was an exciting time for the EMMAs," said John Rodgers, Chief Executive of the EMMA Foundation.
