We couldn’t be more honored to have some of the best talent from across Canada judging our 2020 Awards. Without the commitment of time and passion the judges give to these awards, we would not be able to put on such a high level event. It is also an amazing opportunity to showcase the incredible talent we are so proud to call our own from Vancouver Island. See the full list of judges here.

Away from the smog in cities, our hearts are drawn west, where the only dust is earth, and the only barrier is the sky. Head west for the silence that roars from a wild heart.
