IAF is proud to introduce the BC Buy Local Award of Excellence for outstanding producers and processors!

The 2017 Award will recognize one outstanding BC producer or processor based on the achievements of the best Buy Local marketing project—the campaign that was the most creative, strategic and effective in increasing sales and consumer engagement.

Nominations are open to all funding recipients through the BC Government’s Buy Local Program who have received funding since 2012 and whose project will be completed (with satisfactory final report submitted) by March 31, 2017.

Funding recipients may self-nominate or be nominated by an individual or organization that is part of the value-chain, or a marketing consultant involved with the campaign.

Nominations must be received no later than May 1, 2017 by mail or email. The winner will receive a commemorative plaque at the FoodProWest Gala on June 8th and up to $2,000 for buy local advertising in a consumer-based, BC publication of their choice.

We invite you to share your success and nominate your project!
