Introducing, the inaugural LEO AWARDS
People's Choice Program!

2014 has brought many firsts to the LEO AWARDS — and the LEO AWARDS People's Choice Program is another! As a public outreach initiative, the LEO AWARDS People's Choice Program asks the citizens of BC to vote for their favourite shot-in-BC move and TV show, highlighting the local and international productions that have had a starring role in BC, whether in front or behind the camera.

"BC’s film and television industry is a vibrant and important economic and cultural sector and the People's Choice Program is a great way to create awareness of all the activity taking place in our own backyard," says Sonny Wong, LEO AWARDS producer.

By voting for your favourite shot-in-BC movie and TV show, voters can win a VIP evening at the LEO AWARDS Gala Awards Ceremony! Visit our voting page to vote in the LEO AWARDS People’s Choice Program.

The LEO AWARDS People's Choice Program is sponsored by CBC, Fairmont Hotel Vancouver and Chloë Angus Design.

LEO AWARDS Expand to Three Nights!


For the first time in LEO AWARDS' history, a third night has been added to the awards program. "With a record 1052 eligible entries this year, we've been able to sustain more categories, including the separation of our Feature Length Drama category, with 51 unique titles, into two sections — Motion Picture and Television Movie — effectively doubling our craft entries in those categories," said Walter Daroshin, LEO AWARDS president.

Accordingly, 102 LEO AWARDS will be handed out this year, necessitating the addition of a third evening to allow for the appropriate recognition of all nominees and award recipients.

Watch for the LEO AWARDS 2014 nominees announcement coming soon, along with evening schedules, awards by evening, event hosts and more!
