About Ville de Montréal

Our Indispensables is an initiative of the Conseil des arts de Montréal. They define themselves as: “Founded in 1956, the Conseil des arts de Montréal celebrates artistic vitality and contributes to making Montréal a major cultural metropolis. It identifies, accompanies, supports and recognizes excellence in professional artistic creation, production and dissemination. ” 

“Through its many actions, the Council contributed in 2020 to the funding and outreach of 674 artistic companies and collectives and more than 400 individual artists. ” states Our Indispensables. To celebrate all the accomplishments made but especially the artistic works realized, Our Indispensables decided to realize for the 35th consecutive year the Arts Council Grand Prix.

The Challenge

This year, due to the pandemic, the 35th edition of the Grand Rendez-Vous was realized virtually.  Afterwards, they wanted to reward the public who participated in the grand prize voting by offering them the chance to win CAD$500. Only the public who voted for the Grand Prize had the chance to win the prize. 

The Solution

The solution that was implemented with Osortoo is a live virtual contest. Indeed, the Osortoo platform allows live virtual contests with a countdown and an automatic and random selection of the winner(s) thanks to the Contest Plus tool. It was only necessary to export the list of participants to the Grand Prix vote to enter them in the new online contest. The list of more than 2000 participants was then used to draw the winner of the prize live.
