Former Bemidjians up for Webby Awards

MINNEAPOLIS - Modern Climate, an advertising agency with Bemidji partners, is up for two Webby Awards for digital advertising.

The Webby is to Internet excellence as the Academy Award is to movies.

Keith Wolf, Jason Tell and John Moberg, all formerly from Bemidji and all Bemidji State University graduates, are partners in the Minneapolis-based advertising agency.

"Pretty amazing, given three Bemidji natives and BSU graduates are behind the work," Wolf said in an email. "It's a major accomplishment just to be nominated."

However, the awards are based on public votes, and the company is up against major firms such as Disney. Voting ends Thursday.

"We need votes," Wolf said. "And we need as many as we can get. I know that Bemidji loves to support those with local roots. This award is definitely a feather in the cap of the creativity that exists in the city of Bemidji."
