Vancouver Is Awesome is an independent, community-minded media company dedicated to showcasing to residents all of the great things that keep them here, despite the bad. We hone in on positive stories aiming to inspire you to enjoy your city as well as getting out and making it even more awesome than it already is.
Founded in 2008 by Bob Kronbauer, our award-winning blog is the authority on all-things-awesome in Vancouver. In addition to our regular editorial we sponsor local organizations such as the Vancouver Heritage Foundation and the Vancouver Public Library to publish engaging local content that nobody else has, while supporting important causes. Lastly, we publish sponsored content with companies who have awesome stories to tell and who want to help us stay in business.
Bottom line: If it’s not awesome, you won’t see it here.
Beyond our site we have one of the largest and most engaged social media presences in the city, as well as lines in traditional media waters. Our Facebook page has over 125,000 Likes and is ripe with engagement from our readers. Our @VIAwesome Twitter account has over 100,000 Followers and has been consistently cited as one of the top three to follow in Vancouver. Our Instagram account has 52,000 followers and we’ve been doing a weekly segment on The Peak 102.7FM for over 7 years.
We co-published a history book called Vancouver WAS Awesome which made it to #2 on the BC Bestsellers List, and the followup Our BC WAS Awesome book is coming out on Arsenal Pulp Press in 2017. We recently released a television show by the same name, which you can view episodes of here and on TELUS Optik.
