The awards are presented by the BC Achievement Foundation, an independent foundation established and endowed in 2003 by the Province of BC. The awards recognize art and design that has a practical or functional application. Examples include a furniture designer, an artist who works with glass or an industrial designer who creates a practical object or device.

Up to three recipients will be awarded $2,500 each at a presentation and exhibition event this fall. Recipients also are granted the use of the BC Achievement Award seal to signify creative excellence.
