When we asked Toronto to come up with a better slogan for itself, Toronto responded.
Now, after almost one-thousand submissions—one fifth of which, incidentally, had the word “world” in them—we’re finally almost ready to reveal the ten finalists, as chosen by our esteemed panel of judges. Those ten finalists, to refresh your memory, have each been turned into mock tourism posters by Torontoist’s Marc Lostracco and our photographers. We’ll be publishing them, one at a time, every weekday for the next two weeks, starting this week. When we’re done that, it’ll be your turn to pick our winner.
But first: the slogans that made it near the top ten, but didn’t quite crack the ceiling.
Toronto: Canada’s downtown.
A World at Every Corner
Toronto. A great city on a great lake.
Toronto. Everything but design.
World Class, Local Flavour
Toronto Becomes You
Toronto: World. Class. City.
Give me some TO
Toronto: extremely reasonable
Turn onto Toronto.
Here’s T.O. you.
Do you want TO?
Our Tap Water is Better Than Your Tap Water
Toronto (“tronno”) n., where worlds meet
Toronto: As you are.
Toronto: Don’t choke on the awesome.
Toronto: The World Lives Here
