Many have tried, few succeeded. Back in the early 1990s there was the Irish Interactive Multimedia Association run out of DIT and they had an online directory. Funding ran out and it lapsed.

Then we got the print based Digital Media Directory from the people who host the Digital Media Awards, not sure if that is still going. Last year Athena Media published with Gill and Macmillan the Irish Media Directory and Guide 2006 in paper format.

Just in case you haven’t got one of these guides, the Digital Media Forum is creating an online listing for digital media companies involved in the content and technology sectors.

They have asked us to let you know and there is a specific section for games companies, eLearning and mobile/wireless content providers. You can log on at

First year is free…so I guess after that you pay. Membership includes other benefits like training etc.
