About Lotus Awards

The annual Lotus Awards is a competitive advertising awards show that celebrates creative excellence in British Columbia. Established in 1989, the Lotus Awards show was founded by the West Coast advertising community to recognize outstanding creative work of individuals, companies and agencies in BC. Originally just an “advertising” show, it has been expanded in recent years to include design, interactive and direct mail.


The work is judged numerically on a ‘best of’ basis by a renowned group of communications professionals from some of the most creative and innovative agencies in the US and Europe. This year marks the 16th anniversary of Lotus. It has undeniably helped put British Columbia on the advertising map as a centre for creative excellence. Campaigns that were first recognized in the show have gone on to be seen in CA, Archive, The One Show, Marketing, Clio and Cannes.


The Lotus Awards provides an opportunity for Vancouver’s business community to see the superior creative work being produced locally, the standards for excellence and the results outstanding creative work can have on their brands. The 2005 Lotus Awards are open to any company or individual located in British Columbia, engaged in creating and/or producing advertising.
