Creative Centre Naming Competition Announcement

June 18th, 2012

WANTED

 A GOOD NAME  – 

$500 REWARD

14 June 2012 

Creative Centre for keen Entrepreneurs, Innovators and Artists needs a name. Reward Offered.

For years there have been rumblings in Durham Region about the need for a flexible and dynamic space where the like-minded can collaborate, exchange ideas, expand networks, find an affordable office or studio, share amenities, teach a class or stage an event.  It felt like it was never going to happen.  

But now it is coming. It will occupy a happening spot in the centre of Downtown Oshawa.  It will be a home for like-minded entrepreneurs, innovators and artists.  

BUT, therein lies the problem.  It cannot be referred to as an “it”.  What should it be named?  There’s always calling it “Creative Centre”; well, that’s boring.  “Flying Bananas”, maybe.  What would you name it? 

Your idea may be worth $500.  Please submit your royalty-free concept(s) by June 26th, 2012 in a SINGLE email and mark the subject line as NEW NAME to: [email protected]

A panel of judges will review your submissions,  these are: Erin Elliott, OshaWhat Magazine‘s editor; Gabrielle Peacock, Robert McLaughlin Gallery CEO; David Tuley, Downtown Development Officer; and Chris Baylis, Independent Project Managers VP.  Lobbying or contacting the judges will result in disqualification.  Of course, any and all submissions can be denied.

The winner will be contacted prior to and then publicly announced at the Creative Social event, Thursday, June 28th, The Robert McLaughlin Gallery, Oshawa. For more information or tickets for the event see www.creativesocial.ca.
