Valley companies named best small business finalists

The B.C. public has voted, and local businesses Pomfennworks Studio and PixelPoint Design and Consulting have been named in the top 10 best small businesses in the province as part of the Small Business BC Successful You Awards Contest.

Courtenay business Pomfennworks Studio is competing for the Best Community Impact Award, recognizing the business that best demonstrates a positive impact and investment in the community in which they operate.

PixelPoint is competing for Best Online Marketer Award for an integrated email and social media marketing campaign that demonstrates creativity, originality and appeal as well as proven positive results.

Throughout the last two months these companies gained enough online votes to be named to the top 10. Finalists were selected by B.C. residents who benefit from these businesses, with votes collected online using social media, e-communications and word of mouth.

The contest recognizes the contributions outstanding B.C. entrepreneurs make in six award categories. This year’s finalists come from diverse sectors such as technology, hospitality, tourism and health care. More than 25 communities are represented.

The top 10 will submit an application which judges will use to decide the top five finalists from each category, announced Jan. 30.

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony Feb. 28 in Vancouver.
