Awesome Foundation releases its first Toronto shortlist
A few weeks ago I wrote about the arrival of the Awesome Foundation to Toronto. At the time, the trustees were in the midst of soliciting ideas for its first monthly award of $1000. With the submission process — which was a pretty much anything goes affair — having closed on February 15th, the Foundation has now released its shortlist of 16 ideas (culled from the more than 250 it received).
To some extent, this is the best part. Not to take anything away from the eventual winner, but reading a variety of off-beat ideas is more entertaining than just one — well, within reasonable limits, anyway. I probably wouldn't want to wade through all 250 (or whatever the exact number was), but the shortlist is certainly worth a perusal, even if some are quite obviously more creative than others. Here are a few of my favourites. The full list can be read on the Awesome Foundation's blog. The winner will be announced on February 24th at the Drake Hotel.
