Hey, Vancouverites!

Yes, we mean YOU!

Do you know someone making a difference in the historic and awesome neighbourhood of Chinatown?

If so, this is your chance to help them land a sweet prize for the charity of their choice.

Chinatown is changing fast, thanks to the hard work of resident game changers, revolutionaries, businesses, and families who have a solid vision of the neighbourhood’s future.

And The Flats, by Panther Constructors, is putting on a community contest called “The Heart of Chinatown”, which aims to reward those working hard to make a difference in the tight knit neighbourhood.

The winner will receive $2,000 to their charity of choice — no small prize, and one that will no doubt go a long way to help those in need and make a real impact.

Nominate your top difference maker and let The Flats know what makes that person or business so awesome, or show the world with photos/videos by Apr 2, 2012.

The top five nominees will be announced on Apr 9th and invited to an event presented by The Flats at Café Brixton (219 Georgia East) on Apr 11th, where a panel of local judges will announce the winner.

So what are the judges looking for? Here it is, straight from the judges’ mouths:

  • Individuality: The top 5 contenders will all have their own personal approach & style
  • Charity: Whether it’s time, money or care, show us how the person or business is giving back
  • Creativity: The more creative the entry, the better – send us photos, videos, life-size art installations, whatever gets your point across
  • Ingenuity: The more unique the contribution is to Chinatown community, the more our ears will perk up

We know there are lots of great folks out there, so get nominating!! We’ll be keeping an eye on the nominations with the hashtag #heartofchinatown on twitter.
