TORONTO, Nov. 26, 2012 /CNW/ - Clients of TMX Equicom, Canada's largest investor relations (IR) and strategic design services firm, garnered three awards, including the Apex Award for Best in Show, at the 2012 Oilweek | ATB Financial Annual Report Awards on November 15, 2012.

Gran Tierra Energy (TSX: GTE) won the APEX Award for the best overall annual report, based on merit in both Editorial/Graphic Design and Financial Statements & Analysis, and judged in 12 categories.

Parkland Fuel Corporation (TSX: PKI) won both awards in the Midstream & Pipeline Companies category: Best Editorial/Graphic Design and Best Financial Statements & Analysis.

These awards simply reflect this worldview," said David Feick, Senior Vice President, Western Canada.  "Gran Tierra Energy and Parkland Fuel Corporation are special companies, both on trajectories that speak for themselves. It is fun to witness both their growth and how they overcome challenges; and in a small way to be a part of their journeys."
