Congratulations to the Winners and Runners-Up of the first-ever Made in Alberta Awards
Albertans love supporting local businesses. We love shopping the booths at craft fairs and farmers markets, the shelves at an increasing number of storefronts dedicated to local makers, or surfing around the province online. In order to shine a brighter light on the very best of these creations, we started the Made in Alberta Awards to celebrate and share the stories of local producers. Our judges combed through entries from across Alberta to select the winners in each of seven categories for our first-ever annual awards. They looked for entries that demonstrated the utmost quality and craftsmanship and had strong Alberta roots and stories. The overall winner, category winners and runners up are all here on the site, and we will continue to celebrate Alberta ingenuity and craftsmanship with stories about our entrants all year long. But that’s not all: you can also find many of our winners and finalists at our two marketplaces at Southcentre in Calgary (Sept. 21) and Kingsway in Edmonton (Sept. 28) our showcase at the Calgary Fall Home Show, or join us for our gala awards and makers conference on Sept. 20 at SAIT.
