If you're a Canadian e-merchant and love your 3dcart store, then perk up and pay attention because this one’s for you.

Our friends at Canada Post are sponsoring what is known as the “Ecommerce Innovation Awards.” The contest offers $1 Million in prizes that will be distributed to winners in four different categories. Those categories include… “Best Multi-Channel Retailer,” “Best E-Tailer,” “Most Innovative Retailer” and the overall “Consumer Champion!”

Please keep in mind the contest’s application deadline is July 2nd -- (UPDATE: The deadline has been extended until July 12th) -- and we encourage all of our incredible Canadian-based e-merchants to seriously consider applying.

New to the competition this year is the ability for companies to obtain application sponsors. Interested participants can have up to three partner companies endorse their awards application, and if your company is deemed a finalist, Canada Post will recognize your sponsors in a special multimedia presentation that will debut at the Awards Gala dinner.

Tickets to the Gala, taking place September 25 at the Metro Toronto Convention Center, are on sale now! For purchasing information and more details about the event, please visit the Canada Post website.
