Vancouver, BC, Canada, May 29, 2009 – BCBusiness Online has been awarded the New Media BC’s PopVox Award for Best Website Design.

Launched in 2007, PopVox Awards is a Vancouver people’s choice award for the digital media industry driven by a democratic online voting process. Content creators from across the digital media sectors nominate their own work online, and then it’s up to the public to decide who wins.

“The PopVox Awards attract some of the highest-quality digital content submissions from across the new media sectors, both locally and internationally,” says Kenton Low, President at New Media BC.

BCBusiness Online recently underwent a design refresh before the site was nominated. The new design not only captures the refreshed BCBusiness brand, it also does a great job of showcasing the volume and breadth of the magazine and exclusive website content on the site such as blogs, quizzes, contests, users’ comments, special content packages and more.

"Response to the refreshed BCBusiness site has been overwhelmingly positive," said Shannon Emmerson, Director of Digital Media. "When designing the new site we really listened to the needs of our users. Receiving the PopVox Award for Best Website Design is quite the milestone and we thank our audience for recognizing our continued potential to make the BCBusiness website a truly user-centric site," comments Emmerson. " We are flattered to be considered one of the best and brightest in BC’s digital media industry.”
