Submissions for Torontoist’s slogan competition close tonight, August 10, at 11:59 p.m. So far, more than five hundred slogans have been submitted—which means our panel of judges, whose job it is to narrow them down to ten finalists, has their work cut out for them. Good thing, then, that we’ve got some of Toronto’s best, from advertisers to comedians to business people to politicians, on standby.
Picking the ten slogans that will go to a public vote are ad whiz and Age of Persuasion host Terry O’Reilly; award-winning comedy writers for Second City and The Hour Steven and Daniel Shehori; Toronto thinker, flaneur, and Stroll author Shawn Micallef; TTC Chair and councillor Adam Giambrone; cultural critic and writer Hal Niedzviecki; Rock-It Promotions President Deb Goldblatt; and Toronto Association of Business Improvement Areas Executive Director John Kiru. You’ve got only a few hours left to impress them. (Torontoist’s Karen Aagaard and I are judging as well, but we’re easier to please.)
