Posted by Techvibes NewsDesk

The Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters Association of British Columbia announced today the 27 finalists for the 30th annual BC Export Awards.

The prestigious awards recognize companies and individuals that demonstrate superior innovation and outstanding contributions to the BC export industry, the region’s second largest economic contributor.

The BC Export Awards celebrate industry excellence with nine sector awards and three individual awards, including the Leadership Award, International Business Studies Award and the Exporter of the Year Award.

This year close to 400 nominations were received. Every application was carefully evaluated by a selection committee using criteria established for each award to select the top three finalists for all nine sectors.

Among the 2012 BC Export Awards finalists are a number of tech companies Techvibes has covered over the past year including Ayogo Games, Big Bad Boo Studios, and Nerd Corps Entertainment in the digital media and entertainment category. In addition, Yaletown's Recon Instruments is a finalist in the New Exporter category and Clevest Solutions is up for the Premier’s Award for Job Creation.
