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.
