Marketer of the Year + Marketing Excellence Awards

In 1970, the Beatles broke up, a house on Cambie Street cost $17,000 (with ample street parking!) and the BCAMA Marketer of the Year Awards Gala made its premiere debut as the biggest marketing award show in British Columbia. Many iconic British Columbian brands have since graced the stage, brands you loved way back, like Woodwards and BC Tel, along with brands you love today like Nintendo, London Drugs and BC Hydro.

Back for its golden 50th anniversary, the 2022 Marketer of the Year Awards Gala will be a historic event for British Columbia’s marketing community.


Two types of awards are presented at the Gala:

1. Marketer of the Year (MOY) Announcement

Now in its 50th year, this prestigious honour is presented annually for the most outstanding integrated marketing strategy in the province.

The BCAMA is pleased to announce that it has named Destination Vancouver winner of the coveted Marketer of the Year Award for 2022.

Join us at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver on Thursday, November 24th, 2022, as we recognize Destination Vancouver for demonstrating marketing distinction through their agility in times of uncertainty, collaboration with partners and the community, the breadth of high-quality, interconnected marketing initiatives, the creativity behind those initiatives, and the outstanding results that together helped inspire and rebuild Vancouver’s tourism economy.

Early bird tickets are on sale now – join us to enjoy and celebrate this golden anniversary evening full of inspiration and creativity with your peers in BC’s marketing community.


2. Marketing Excellence Awards (MEAs)

Since 2016, we have also presented the Marketing Excellence Awards, honouring excellence in specific areas of marketing.  Winners are announced live at the Marketer of the Year Awards Gala. To learn more about the MEAs or to enter a submission, please review the Submission Guideline.

In 2022, MEA award categories include:

  • Not-for-profit/cause marketing
  • Content marketing, storytelling and/or influencer marketing
  • Single integrated campaign – consumer
  • Branding or Rebranding
  • Marketing on a shoestring
  • Business to Business marketing


3. Volunteer Opportunities

We are looking for extraordinary volunteers to assist with planning and executing the 2022 Marketer of the Year Gala event. This Gala event has been one of the most anticipated and prestigious industry events within the province for nearly five decades.  And it’s a great opportunity to build or practice your event planning and marketing skills and build your resume in a safe and fun environment.
