How lucky are we? As we geared up this spring for our fourth annual Made in Vancouver Awards, our offices were flooded (as every year!) with a tangible reminder of what a creative, colourful, wonderful place we live in: a place full of masterful makers, people who pour their hearts into crafting fantastical wooden bicycles, soothing serums, it-burns-so-good hot sauces and wearable works of art that make buying local a true joy.
We’re thrilled to announce the gold medallists and the incredible contenders who were hot on their heels in the pages that follow—but, ultimately, this competition always leaves us feeling like the real winners.
