Chinatown is changing and driving this change are the people within it. The people who live it, who breathe it, who embody the spirit of it. And that’s who we want. Tell us about the game changers, the revolutionaries, the moms and dads making this neighbourhood better.
Nominate your top difference maker and let us know what makes that person/business so awesome, or show us with photos/videos by Apr 2, 2012. The top five nominees will be announced on Apr 9th and invited to an event presented by The Flats at 219 Georgia East at Café Brixton on Apr 11th, where the winner will be announced by a panel of local judges.
When it comes to judging, we’re not a judgmental bunch but here’s the criteria we’ll be using to select the top 5:
- Individuality: The top 5 contenders will all have their own personal approach & style
- Charity: Whether it’s time, money, or care, show us how the person or business is giving back
- Creativity: The more creative the entry, the better – send us photos, videos, life-size art installations, whatever gets your point across
- Ingenuity: The more unique the contribution is to Chinatown community, the more our ears will perk up
Who says no good deed goes unpunished? The winner will receive $2,000 to donate to one of four pre-selected charities of choice.
