Toronto Artists Win Unicorn Awards
The Unicorn Awards were introduced for #TAAP5 as a way for peers, industry insiders, and the CUTO Creative team to recognize and vote for those who have a positive influence on our creative community.
The categories included best dressed (cosplay is encouraged), best setup, and best live painter.
All Year Round
The goal is to expand the integration of the Unicorn Awards beyond just the event heading into #TAAP6. We want to award unicorns who interact with us through social media, projects, and through our event.
This year we'll be handing out numerous awards. There will be some returning from the previous events as well as some new ones.
Unicorn of the Month
One of those new awards is Unicorn of the Month.
Unicorn of the Month is based on the interviews we publish on CUTO Marketplace. It is designed to highlight trending artists. Trending on CUTO is based on accumulated volume (Volume = Page views, sales, shares, likes, and comments).
