TORONTO - One lucky Canadian will have the chance to add their dream doughnut to the Tim Hortons menu and walk away with $10,000 as winner of Duelling Donuts contest, launched by the iconic bake shop today.

Home chefs have until Aug. 1 to whip up a uniquely delicious doughnut. Contestants will first have to create a virtual doughnut on the contest site and argue their case in a written submission.

Eight finalists will defend their culinary creation to a celebrity panel, including actor Jason Priestley, musician Jann Arden and pastry chef Anna Olson. After the panel chooses four submissions to advance, the final word on who will walk away with the prize money will be left to an online vote. The winner will be announced Aug. 28.

Tim Hortons launched the contest last year, attracting 63,000 submissions. The idea came from a Jason Priestley cameo on "How I Met Your Mother," where Priestley created a doughnut named after himself. A Tim Hortons chef made the Priestley Doughnut a reality and public interest inspired the idea for a contest where anyone could design their own doughnut.

Last year's winning submission was the Tortoise Torte — a chocolate, caramel and pecan creation — by 39-year-old Andrew Shepherd.
