JUDGES’ COMMENTS: “Great cities are open cities—open to all people, open economically, open opportunity. Simple and quick and a bit of folksiness. Nice.” “This is like the ‘welcome mat’ of city slogans. My only hesitation regarding this one-liner is that it could, potentially, be applied to just about any other city (or, um, retailer?) on the continent.” “At a glance, it might feel a bit retro, but it’s pulling a lot of weight and it’s such a punchy slogan. The slogan itself is open: you can read it just about any way you want to.”
