Attention all local makers! We're accepting entries for our fourth annual Made in Vancouver Awards until April 15, 2022—that means you've got less than two weeks left to enter. Categories include Food (Sweet and Savoury), Drink, Beauty, Style, Home and Wildcard. Winning a Made in Vancouver Award gets you a feature in Vanmag's summer issue (both in print and online), and the exposure and acclaim that comes with that is pretty awesome: take it from last year's winners. Here are a few reasons why you should enter the 2022 Made in Vancouver Awards.

Introduce Vancouver to Your Company

"Winning the Made in Vancouver Award has definitely made a difference to my business.  People still come by saying they read about me in Vancouver magazine and that they'd either never heard of a canelé but now must try one, or that they were just excited to find one that was rated highly and might compare to the ones in their memory."

Expand Your Business

"Little did we realize our Poke marinade would take on a life of its own. Winning the award validated the recipe our staff and family members kept raving about before its commercial release and now it’s become a favourite within our community all across Canada. The Poke marinade was also our first foray into creating condiments, marinades and soups that highlight our all natural seafood and has now given us the confidence to expand our product lines and offerings.”
—Guy Dean, president/GM of Organic Ocean Seafood Inc.

Increase Sales

"The pandemic was, in fact, a very hard time for my business as we lost some off-line sale places in Vancouver. To get such a great award was first of all very inspiring and motivating for our team. It was also a great opportunity to contact our audience. And it's definitely made a difference as we got more attention and sales."

Share What You Love

"As a chef, it is always great to see your work recognized, but in my case, I felt that it was also the triumph of being fully integrated into Canadian society knowing that my Spanish cuisine recipes are so appreciated so far from my native Barcelona. I think that the most important thing when you participate in an award in this category is to present a product that you really feel proud of. It is very noticeable when a dish is made with love and I believe that this love is transmitted to the people who eat and enjoy it. For me, without a doubt, the love of cooking is everything, especially the Spanish cuisine that I grew up with and that I now bring to Vancouver."
