Imagination Catalyst Audience Choice Award
For those who are familiar with the Maker Festival will know that each year the title of Best in Show is awarded to a handful of exemplary Makers chosen by the organizing team. This year, Best in Show will be accompanied by an Audience Choice Award of $1000 generously gifted by the folks at OCAD University’s Imagination Catalyst program.
The Imagination Catalyst is OCAD University’s hub for entrepreneurship and commercialization. They support and develop entrepreneurial talent among OCAD University faculty, students and alumni, as well as creative entrepreneurs across the GTA by providing infrastructure and programming to help take ideas from napkin-on-paper to product-on-shelf. Their goal is to help launch new companies and products that contribute to the prosperity of our community, and we’re delighted to have them on board in support not only of the Festival itself, but of the Makers who bring the event to life.
Both awards will be presented on the 3rd floor of the Toronto Reference Library at 4:30PM on Saturday 1st August. Come join us for the ceremony!
