An advertising copywriter or art director who never fails to find a way to add his/her name to major awards show credits - without actually doing any of the work. Slash-hunters often score trips to international awards shows by scamming their co-workers for credit. Slash-hunters are not very popular people in advertising agencies.
"Did you hear that Tod's going to Cannes this year for that mobile app? He didn't even do anything on that job other than making a suggestion at peer review! He's such a slash-hunter, man."
