Submissions: Six-Word Motto for New Orleans

In our latest magazine, the New Orleans Issue, we asked readers to send us a six-word motto that captures New Orleans in this moment. Our goal was to solicit "statements of value" for a place in need of renewed focus.

During the month of July, we received submissions that extracted and described the essence of the city, from its culture and food to its music and mentality. Unfortunately, we couldn't post all of the submissions. Our art team choose 11 entries and interpreted them visually.

The fate of New Orleans' new motto rests in your hands. Please let us know which slide you feels best captures the city right now by sharing your thoughts in the comments section below. We will choose a winner by Thursday, August 12.
