BC Beer Awards & Festival is pleased to bring back the 4th Annual Creative Industry Awards presented by Major Tom! These awards are a recognition for excellence that goes beyond just brewing wonderful BC beer. We see what you’re all doing out there to contribute to the creative side of this industry, and we want to continue to celebrate that!
Once again we’re working with the awesome team at Major Tom Digital Solutions as our presenting sponsor! They’ve created a submission platform to ease the entry process this year.
The preliminary judging round will see the CIA Category Sponsors choose the finalists for each category, based on a variety of predetermined criteria. The top 6 entries in our 8 categories will then move on to the final round of judging. Hosted at Major Tom’s headquarters in downtown Vancouver, this round will take place on Tuesday, September 20th, 2022. Our panel will consist of all our sponsors, as well as Creative industry professionals and Media. See below for more information on submission dates & timelines. All winners will be announced at the BC Beer Awards & Festival on Saturday, November 5th, 2022.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Only those breweries which are registered for regular BC Beer Awards beer judging and hold their own manufacturing license are eligible to submit entries for the CIAs. Please sign up if you have yet to do this – BC Beer Awards 2022 – Brewery Sign Up for Submitting Entries for Judging
Each brewery is allotted four submissions per category maximum, and each submission costs $40 + taxes and fees.
Once the first round of judging is complete, finalists will be contacted to send physical entries or deliver them in person to our address in Vancouver. You will have an approx 2 week window to send items via mail, so please ensure they are on hand. If you’d like your item back you may pick it up at the BC Beer Awards on Nov 5th.
