Choose Your Own Adventure, er... Billboard

Are you tired of looking at billboard advertisements and scratching your head? Or maybe you're just fed up with the blanket of beavers, purple inspirational messages, and flamboyant silhouettes you see every time you turn a corner.

Well, now you have a chance to choose what you'd like to see on some of the billboards owned by Astral Media. The Astral Media Outdoor "My Toronto" Design Competition is in its second year, and over the past couple of months a select panel of judges have been whittling away the competition. OCAD students entered their Toronto-promoting designs in March, and the four finalists have been chosen. Now, the ball is passed onto you!

Decide which ad you'd like to see posted on 20 outdoor billboards (you're also picking the winner of nice monetary prize, plus a $2000 donation to whichever charity the winning team supports). This is a great way to motivate future designers, and also gives them a much needed foot in the door to the advertising industry. My vote goes to design above!
