Toronto sports mascot design competition
The next Ontario Summer Games will take place in Toronto in August 2012. Aligning with their One Year to Go countdown, the Organizing Committee has launched a Mascot Design Competition. The poster below is designed to promote the competition, with the first due-date on October 7.
Chair of the 2012 Ontario Summer Games Organizing Committee, Rahul Bhardwaj, said that these games are, “a tremendous opportunity for the City of Toronto to host Ontario’s best amateur athletes, the legacy of volunteerism and sport development will have a lasting impact on the City.”
The Ontario Games began in 1970 as a showcase for amateur sport; they have now become Ontario’s largest multi-sport event, involving over 3,000 athletes, coaches, managers, and officials from across the province who participate in both team and individual sports. The Games take place every two years and are awarded through a formal bidding process. The Ontario Games are a program of the Ontario Ministry of Health Promotion and Sport and are delivered by the Sport Alliance of Ontario. The 2012 Ontario Summer Games are a partnership of the City of Toronto, The Toronto Sports Council and Tourism Toronto.
