If you’re interested in some free publicity, there’s no better way than to apply and be selected for many of the awards and contests put on by Alberta’s magazine publishers or affiliates. There’s no end of ways to be recognized via our local provincial trade and business magazines… Contests such as Alberta Venture’s Fast Growth 50, Oilweek’s Rising Stars, or Business in Calgary’s Leaders of Tomorrow are but a few of the vehicles offering exposure to worthy businesses and individuals.

And to be recognized, you not only need to be excellent, but you also need to have a strong nomination in your favour. That’s where Blunt Strategic comes in. We know just what the judges are looking for in terms of application content and can help you craft a nomination that will be sure to get you noticed. Just ask Blunt’s client Rockwood Custom Homes, which with our help, has received or been a finalist for six different awards in 2013 alone, including Ernst and Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year Awards and Alberta Venture’s Contractor of the Year Awards.

Compared to hefty advertising prices, the type of exposure and publicity received through these types of recognitions is not only extremely cost effective, but also an objective nod for your accomplishments that  sends a strong signal to new and existing clients, competitors and the community at large about you as a successful organization.
