This year, a new element of the contest includes the new “Canada’s Choice” category in addition to the “Doing Good”, “Marketing Magic”, and “Rising Stars” categories.
Created in 2020 to celebrate Canadian small businesses that adapted to COVID-19 in extraordinary ways, the Tales of Triumph contest is open to Canadian companies with less than $5 million in annual gross sales.
The contest lets small businesses share their stories of creativity and resiliency for a chance to win prizes such as credits for Canada Post Parcel and Smartmail Marketing services.
An external panel of judges chooses all finalists in the three categories.
- Doing Good: Recognizing businesses that know doing good is good for business. These businesses pride themselves on supporting others, making communities stronger and investing in a better Canada.
- Marketing Magic: These businesses are investing in marketing to strengthen and support their business’ growth and are growing their voice, awareness and presence.
- Rising Stars: Recognizing businesses that have launched over the past two years and have gone from 0 to 100 in the blink of an eye – be it an online business, a brick-and-mortar location, or anything in between.
The judges this year are:
- Darian Kovacs, Founder, Jelly Digital Marketing & PR, Jelly Academy
