Time to show us your skills!

Improv In Toronto is well on the way to becoming a leader in Toronto free and fun events. We have held Massive Waldo Searchs, Crazy Dance Partys, and Awkward No Pants Rides. All the while though, we’ve been missing something. We REALLY need a clear and defining LOGO. And you can give it to us!

The guidelines are quite open: make us something cool and classy that we can put up on our website, facebook group, and most importantly…ON T-SHIRTS! YAY.

Here’s the info you need:
We are called: IMPROV IN TORONTO
The short form is: IT

What do you get out of it? A free t-shirt, a $25 gift certificate, copious amounts of praise, as well as having your work shown all over the internet!

Any questions regarding the competition can be written in the comments section of this post, and will be answered immediatly.

All submissions* can be emailed to
[email protected]
*By submitting your work to us, you are giving us full use and control over the image.
