May 1May 31, 2017

TORONTO, May 4, 2017 /CNW/ - 20VIC Management Inc. shopping centres across Canada announced Monday the kick off of its Faces Of Canada contest. With the national contest launch also came the grand reveal of 22 locally-created art/design installations to support the project and an exclusive commemorative gift card. The Canada 150 installations will serve as backdrops in the national Faces of Canada photo contest, for which the grand prize winner will receive a 6-night trip for two at any Fairmont Hotel & Resort in Canada, compliments of Fairmont Hotels & Resorts.*

Each shopping centre partnered with a local artist/designer to create a one-of-a-kind installation that reflects Canada's past, present or future. Each unique installation has now been revealed across the country and is on display at each shopping centre leading up to Canada Day, serving as a focal point and Canada 150 landmark in each mall. Additionally, the installation will provide a beautiful backdrop for the Faces of Canada contest taking place from May 1-31, 2017. As part of the Faces of Canada contest, shoppers are encouraged to take a picture with the installation and post it to their personal social media channels using the local hashtag for a chance to win exciting prizes and be entered to win the grand prize.

"We hope the Faces Of Canada contest brings local communities, families and friends together in celebration of our national pride and community spirit," says Mark Robinson, Vice President, Retail, 20VIC Management Inc. "It's been such a pleasure to support local artists/designers, observe the one-of-a-kind installations come to life and to see the remarkable talent the Canadian design community has to offer."

In addition to the installation unveilings and the Canada 150 Faces of Canada contest, 20VIC managed properties are selling limited edition, custom designed Canada 150 gift cards. In true Canadian spirit, for every $50 in gift cards sold, each shopping centre is donating $1 to various veteran charities across the country with an anticipated cumulative donation of over $50,000.

"We are honoured to raise awareness and important funds that directly support the Canadian Veteran and First Responder community through the commemorative Canada 150 gift card program," adds Mark Robinson. "Canadians are known for their generosity and this initiative allows us to exhibit true Canadian spirit in recognition of our Veterans' heroism and selflessness."

20VIC invites and encourages all Canadians to get involved in its Canada 150 celebrations. Those interested can learn more by visiting the website of their local 20VIC managed property for a chance to partake in Canada 150 festivities, see the local display and enter the Faces of Canada contest.
