2023 Awards

Vancouver's Largest UX Design Event

The VanUX Awards provide an opportunity for user-centric organizations, agencies, start-ups, freelancers, and students to be recognized for their work over the past year.

About the Awards

Founded in 2014, the Vancouver UX Awards celebrate the incredible work produced in the Vancouver and Lower Mainland of British Columbia, Canada.

Being a nominee in the 2019 Vancouver UX Awards gave us a huge boost of confidence. It showed our team that we could hang in with the big players and compete with the larger, bigger budget agencies. Meeting all the other competitors was a great networking tool.
