2019 BIZ X AWARDS WINNERS REVEALED!
The 2019 Biz X Awards issue is now online for Windsor-Essex readers to enjoy.
Thank you to all our readers who participated to help find the best businesses, organizations, events and biz pros in Windsor Essex.
The 22nd Annual Biz X Awards winners have now been revealed. A list of categories can be found below but to see the rules, see the Judging crew and all results please turn to page 18 of our Nov/Dec issue.
The panel of Biz X Judges reviewed the nomination information submitted; the results of the voting poll and the company background information sent in by nominees. And the tough decisions were made on who would earn the coveted “pillar of success” Biz X Award.
The judging panel consists of local business professionals and industry experts. Judges compile their own background research and where applicable do on-site visits before casting their vote in a secret ballot for the eventual winner of each category. Judges do not know the actual winners until the release of the November/December edition.
We congratulate each and every nominee on their success and wish all businesses and organizations in this year’s award tribute the best of luck for the future!

The Annual Biz X Awards Edition And Awards Gala
Each year the Biz X Awards are presented to companies, organizations, events and individuals in Windsor and Essex County, recognizing their hard work, dedication and talent. Since inception in 1998, over 700 local recipients in all kinds of industries and occupations have received a Biz X Award.
It’s worth it for your business to get involved in the Biz X Awards program, just ask any of our previous winners! Recipients receive a plaque, an invitation to our black tie party in November, and a write-up in the annual awards issue. More importantly, winners can brag to others that they are number one in their field (which of course gives them an edge over their competition!).
Which businesses and people will receive the Biz X Award —the “pillars of success” — this year?
How The Biz X Awards Process Works
In the July/August issue and September issues (digital and print) the list of categories available for nominations are published in the magazine and on our website.
There are seven staple categories awarded every year — “Outstanding New Business,” “Distinguished Biz Champ Of The Year,” “Powerhouse Professional,” “Artist of the Year,” “Best Little Retail Shop,” “Restaurant That’s Hot, Hot, Hot” and “The Most Wonderful Event Of The Year.”
