NEW HYDE PARK, N.Y., 2016-Sep-27 — /EPR Retail News/ — Kimco Realty Corp. (NYSE: KIM) today ( 9/26/2016) launched its fourth annual REIToon Cartoon Caption Contest. The contest challenges retail and real estate professionals to think up witty captions to complete two new cartoons from REIToons, Kimco’s popular blog series. Kimco will publish the cartoons and winning captions in its 2017 REIToons wall calendar, which will also feature the 10 best REIToons compiled from its award-winning blog. The two winners will each receive a $1,000 American Express gift card.
“The REIToons Cartoon Caption Contest is one of retail real estate’s most anticipated events of the year,” said Diane Agostinello, director of marketing and leasing services at Kimco Realty. “It gives real estate professionals the chance to apply their experience in a humorous manner and it’s a fun way to kick off the holiday shopping season.”
Kimco’s REIToons are drawn by nationally syndicated cartoonist Mark O’Collin. The contest is open to anyone in retail, including retailers, brokers, investors, landlords, and other industry professionals. To enter, visit http://blog.kimcorealty.com/2016/09/win-1000-in-our-annual-cartoon-caption-contest/ and write your best caption for one or both of the selected REIToons by Oct. 28.
