I’m a Top 10 finalist for ad industry’s most creative Canadian


 Okay, so Marketing Magazine is having their 2nd Annual Great Canadian Creative Faceoff. And after reviewing all of their submissions, the judging committee has chosen yours truly as one of the Top 10 finalists. It’s a contest to find the most creative person who works in the ad industry, based on their activities when not at work. A cursory perusal of this blog will show you that I engage in a number of creative activities when I’m not at work. Whether I’m any good at them is a whole other matter, to be discussed at another time, preferably over tequila. But right now, we’re talking about this contest. Here’s how it’s officially described:

This is a search for the cream of Canada’s creative crop, from across all sectors of our industry-agency, marketer, media, PR. Based on all the nominations received, the top 10 will be selected by Marketing’s writers and editors, then posted and profiled on creativefaceoff.ca. From there we turn it over to the audience. We’ll be asking you to vote for your favourite. Based on the voting results, the list will be narrowed to 5 semi-finalists. Then, we’ll ask for a vote again. A second round of voting will take the Top 5 to Top 3, and the final voting will determine the winner of the 2010 Great Canadian Faceoff, revealed at the 2010 Media Innovation Awards on November 18.
Blah, blah, blah. The point is, go to www.creativefaceoff.ca and vote for me. Under my picture you can click on the link to vote via Twitter. But also, if you scroll down past the faces (which you have to do if you have a teeny laptop like moi), that’s where you can select my name to give a non-Twitter vote as well. I hate asking people to go to websites to vote for me. But, well, I guess it’s just the curse of being so fabulous that I get shortlisted for so many things. Also, since only half of Toronto actually went out and voted for Mayor, here’s the other half’s chance to redeem themselves and vote for something. Just don’t vote for Rob Ford in this contest, for god’s sake. It’s going to start going to his head.
