What are these images?
The images that you are looking at are depictions of Baycrest’s Rotman Research Institute scientists’ research in art form. The banners were made by students using mixed media.
How do I vote?
Look at the image from both a technical (how difficult was it to create, what skills were used etc.) and artistic point of view (what does the image say, how does it make you feel etc.). Ask yourself these questions:
How will I know who won?
Join us on April 26 from 1:30 - 3 pm in Wortsman Hall for the award ceremony and celebrate with the first, second, and third place winners.
Where can I see these banners after the opening?
The banners will be displayed along the corridor from Baycrest’s Khedive entrance to Wortsman Hall.
Selection of prize winners:
Top three (3) prize winners will be determined solely based on the highest number of online votes received during the online voting period (10:00 am on April 16 to 11:59 pm on April 20, 2012). In the event of a tie, a panel of judges who are Baycrest employees will determine the winner based on the overall creativity of the tied entries. Judges' decisions are final, binding and conclusive on all matters related to online voting.
Prizes will be distributed at the Opening Reception on April 26, 2012. In the event that one of the winners is absent a representative will accept the prize on the winner’s behalf. Each potential prize winner, and/or their parent or legal guardian if such winner is a minor, must sign and return a consent form for media release of pictures and promotion related to the win.
Baycrest and its affiliates shall have no liability or responsibility related to the prize or with the use of it or to award the prize where any required entries are not fully executed and received by Baycrest at the designated time by the due date; or for any other reason not explicitly stated in these guidelines.
