Vancouver Tech Journal is officially an award-winning publication.

Managing Editor Kate Wilson took home the prize for Excellence in Technology Reporting at the 2023 Webster Awards for her story “Microsoft president Brad Smith is leading the vision of a connected Cascadia.” 

The article explores Smith’s belief that by focusing on climate and clean energy, the Pacific Northwest can become an economic megaregion. Through public-private partnerships and beyond, former B.C. premier John Horgan, governor of Washington State Jay Inslee, and former governor of Oregon Kate Brown are backing the case for closer ties — both for business and humanitarian ends.

The winners in the 14 categories for the 2023 Webster Awards were announced last night during a live in-person event, hosted by CHEK TV's Paul Haysom and Gloria Macarenko from CBC Radio. Macernko also conducted a fireside chat with the evening’s featured guest, veteran anchor and journalist Lisa LaFlamme.

The Websters are Western Canada’s preeminent journalism awards, which recognize excellence in the field across print, radio, television, and online media sources. Its categories cover news, sports, the arts, business, community issues and more.

The full list of winners and their stores are available on the Webster Awards’ website.
