I am a Flash developer from Ottawa, Ontario. I would love to be able to attend FITC and stay on top of the latest and greatest projects using Flash.

With CS5 coming out in only a few days, I’m very excited to see what this new version of Flash will offer!

Apr 6, 2010 at 8:18 am

I have just started up my own Freelancing Design Business along side being a full time student and a full time tech support employee for the University of Illinois. I’m really passionate about design work and would love to be able to go to a conference like this to be able to network, meet people in my field, and expand my horizons in the design world.

Flash does nothing but confuse and frustrate me. I’d love to learn to love it.

I’ve never been to Toronto or this conference, but if it’s name shows any indication of what the week will be like, then this thing is going to be off the hook!


Apr 6, 2010 at 9:32 am

never been in canada for anything. a conference should be good reason :)

Apr 6, 2010 at 9:33 am

Would like to go to meet other motion designers! Would be good fun.

Hello everyone,

Just like everyone around,
I’d like to play this ticket draw.
This event will lift me from the ground,
If I do pull the longer straw.

Design, my passion, my soul fire,
Design – forever! For the win!
Well, this describes my deep desire,
To go to FITC this spring.


Apr 6, 2010 at 10:07 am

I’ve never been to a conference of this caliber, nor have I been somewhere as awesome as Toronto, so both would be great experiences.

Simon Robert
Apr 6, 2010 at 10:28 am

I’m a web site designer from Montréal who came out from school in 2008, this can be a good opportunity to improve my design (graphic design) skills. I always want to take some others courses in design, but I have to much works and less time for learning. This 3 days conferance would be perfect for me. It’s can can also be good time to discover Toronto and practice my english speaking.

Thanks to WDW for this chance to win a free ticket.

Derek K
Apr 6, 2010 at 10:35 am

I wanna go so I can learn, be inspired, and hang with the awesome folks who’ll be there. Plus, with most of the web hating Flash right now, I feel FITC will be a place for Flash lovers to gather.

“Each problem that I solved became a rule which served afterwards to solve other problems.”
– Rene Descartes (1596-1650), “Discours de la Methode”
The conference will establish problems that need to be solved. I want to solve them to make my own set of rules.

I’m a developer by trade and have been trying to do some design work on my own, recently taking up Photoshop and Illustrator. I’d love to go to a professional conference to learn more and get ideas about where the industry is going and where I should be focusing my efforts.

Thanks and good luck everyone,

Apr 6, 2010 at 11:34 am

I would LOVE to go to this design conference. I’m pretty much a sponge when it comes to articles/books/lectures about design. I’ve been hunting for an affordable event to go and Toronto isn’t that far from Cleveland.

I would love to get one one these tickets as ive never been to a design conference neither been to toronto!

Apr 6, 2010 at 8:45 pm

Love design, love to go to Toronto AGAIN!

Erika Lucivero
Apr 6, 2010 at 8:45 pm

My dream is to make designs that create a reaction and bring awareness to profound ideas, knowledge and social issues that are kept hidden by large corporations. For example, eating 1/3 a cup of bee pollen a day (available at health food stores) gives you all the nutrients you need to survive!! Also, instead of buying American meat, the European Union pays the US $150 million per year in lost profit to keep the meat out of their country.

Attending FITC would give me the opportunity to network with people that could help me communicate through design these and many more ideas that our society needs to be aware of!! Thank you!!

Apr 6, 2010 at 10:11 pm

I wanna go cause it’ll be dope (and to learn) :)

Apr 6, 2010 at 10:21 pm

I’m poor yet extremely talented. Help me. Never been.

Apr 6, 2010 at 10:23 pm

After reading Larry Turner’s post I feel that he deserves it!! No kidding!

If he doesn’t get it though, then I’m pretty keen myself.. I see myself as someone who has a passion for design and I would love to attend.

Apr 6, 2010 at 11:05 pm

I want to go to FITC so bad, missed it last year and had to hear the second hand awesome from my designer friends. I’m scraping by on freelance so I’ll make sure not to let a second of it go to waste. I promise I will be one big-ass brain sponge there soaking up 99% knowledge, 1% beer (don’t judge)

Apr 6, 2010 at 11:17 pm

Hellow there!
my name is Elsa, a 23 year old curly italian graphic designer who just moved to Toronto (coming from a very disappointing MA in Graphic Design in London) that just can’t afford the ticket. (great,eh?)
Jobless as I am and after reading all the schedule, I just can not stand the idea of not being able to take part of the FITC… :( We have a very similar one in Milan called Fuorisalone which covers the entire city so I am very aware of what I’m going to miss if I don’t get a ticket.. just the fact that I’ll get to know people in the same field would give me such a great push in the right direction! There’s even one of my favourite designers speaking at one of the presentations (Scott Hansen)..

I want to be great in my passion that is graphic design and events like these just keep me going and make me want to do better everyday.

In few words: the ticket will be an opportunity for me…and i’ll make the most of it if i will only be given a chance.

Thank you


Apr 7, 2010 at 2:17 am

Please send me to FITC! I am a young freelance designer. I want to learn from the best designers out there. I want to network with the best designers out there. I want to bring expert quality design to my work.
…Not to mention that a few days in Toronto would be damn fun.

I’m a French studen @ Paris Marne-la-Vallée, and I’m actually studiying webdesign so i’m very interested to get there !


Apr 7, 2010 at 3:23 am

Hi, I am a Mexican International Student in el Paso Tx. I am doing the programming degree but I like a lot everything about graphics. Really, taking this opportunity could be a great experience in my development path. Thank you and I hope…Good Luck!!!

Apr 7, 2010 at 3:46 am

webmarketer and blogger, i hope to go to FITC events to meet designers and get idea from what it could be done between webdesign and technology.

Apr 7, 2010 at 4:51 am

I am also running a Web design company, but you are really doing a good job because these kinds of Festivals are very informative.


Apr 7, 2010 at 7:48 am

Apr 7, 2010 at 8:34 am

Never been to one of these and I have been programming professionally since 1984! This would be awesome!

Rick Santos

Here’s my post. Now where’s my ticket?

…kidding by the way.

Apr 7, 2010 at 9:55 am

I live in Toronto, but being a student my money goes to paying rent in this city. I’ve unfortunately never been able to attend, and was hoping this might be the year.

Apr 7, 2010 at 10:56 am

I’m a design student currently and would be utterly humbled by going!
I would give an arm and a leg for a chance like this!

Apr 7, 2010 at 11:30 am

Love to go, never been there. I also live pretty close to Toronto. It will be exciting to learn so many new things.

Ivan Plotnikov
Apr 7, 2010 at 11:48 am

This year I just can’t afford it.

Apr 7, 2010 at 9:42 pm

I’m just starting to learn ActionScript 3.0, and our teacher introduced us to Joshua Davis … I am in awe of the cool things that can be done with Flash & it would be amazing to see what else is out there :)

Apr 8, 2010 at 9:07 am

Hello, if I win, I will give away my ticket to someone else (from the comments), because I’m in Lebanon, and there is no way for me to go to Canada :D

Apr 8, 2010 at 9:58 am

I would like a ticket so i can see whats new in the flash community (cs5 looks promising) as well as see my friend present.

Apr 8, 2010 at 10:52 am

FITC is one of the closest large-scale design conferences to Pittsburgh. Its refreshing as a designer to go to events like this and see what everyone else in the community has been up to.

Apr 8, 2010 at 1:39 pm

Can I have it? I’m from Ontario like you… :)

Apr 8, 2010 at 2:38 pm

Apr 8, 2010 at 2:41 pm


Apr 8, 2010 at 3:29 pm

Apr 8, 2010 at 3:34 pm

Would love to go! I am a web designer in Toronto, I have volunteered at FITC in previous years in order to catch some of the presentations for free… but it would be amazing to have an actual pass :)

Apr 8, 2010 at 4:01 pm

Oh please select me! because I am a designer based in toronto who is a fan of webdesigner wall, originally graduated as a print designer and self taught in web design I am always concerned about being updated with the latest trends, this would represent an awesome opportunity to get in touch with the greatest professionals, this is the real deal here. Please please please give me the chance to win a pass!

Apr 8, 2010 at 4:01 pm

I would love to go! I was previously with an agency and I am now breaking out freelance. I need to make these networking connections. Plus it looks like a lot of fun!

Open the tickets, put them in an envelope, and send them directly to me.

Patric Jonsson
Apr 9, 2010 at 3:41 am

My boss at the agency first granted me access to the conference, then declined with the comment: “We push it to the autumn…”. So no FITC for me. UNLESS :) you send me the ticket, please please please :D

Apr 9, 2010 at 4:08 am

Please give it to me :-)

Apr 9, 2010 at 7:38 am

Andy Griffiths
Apr 9, 2010 at 8:55 am

Would love to go to this conference but if win them then I may have to pass them on tho a fellow designer as i am from the UK and wont be able to travel to Toronto :-(

Apr 9, 2010 at 9:45 am

Oh, this would be great to go to! I work at a large financial institution doing UX/UI here in Toronto…

Apr 9, 2010 at 10:06 am

Please count me in – I’m desperate to go this year. I love the after-parties and Flash talks are about the only lectures I can sit through with a mammoth hangover.

Quan Duong
Apr 9, 2010 at 10:54 am

I’m a graphic designer working in-house and need some inspiration! I think this is a great opportunity to find that spark again.

Theo Diamantis
Apr 9, 2010 at 2:16 pm

I’d like to go. I’ve never been. It would be a great opportunity to learn, network with other artists and designers for potential collaboration and enjoy creative time with peers. So yes. It be great to be picked.

Michael Chiang

Colleen C
Apr 10, 2010 at 9:13 pm

I’m new to the industry and still learning, after spending 25 years in Semiconductors! This would be a great opportunity for immersion learning.

Apr 11, 2010 at 4:47 pm

I’m a young graphic designer in need of inspiration. My last job was ruthless in making me feel like crap in my abilities as a designer and this would be something that I can’t afford to go myself but would greatly help me develop as a designer.

Apr 11, 2010 at 4:59 pm

After 25 years as a successful commercial photographer, I’ve immersed myself in a new endeavor and would love to be able to make use of the ticket.

Apr 11, 2010 at 7:30 pm

I want some fun!

Apr 11, 2010 at 9:20 pm

Particular interest in diving deeper in FLAR, Flex and Catalyst! Not to mention all the amazing people that will be there.

Apr 11, 2010 at 9:47 pm

I’m a graphic designer that lives in the city and just could never afford tickets.

Apr 15, 2010 at 8:49 am

I grew up enjoying drawing and designing, lost my passion somewhere in college and got a degree in Engineering Technology, found out who and what I wanted to be about 4 years ago and worked my butt off learning everything about design I could fit in my head and now am a Multimedia Graphic Designer at an international manufacturing company. An opportunity like this would be the icing on the very roundabout design career path cake I’ve been on.

Meeting Nick La wouldn’t be the worst thing either. :)

Tony Pagel
