Richmond wants to make every day a banner day. But your help is required.

Entries in the 26th annual Street Banner Contest closed Sept. 28 with over 400 submissions. A community volunteer judging panel then pared the submissions to 20 semifinalists, and now it’s time for you to vote for your favourite.

Until 5 p.m. Oct. 24, residents are encouraged to log onto City's Facebook page to view and “like” their favourite designs. Designs can also be viewed at Richmond City Hall and votes cast by emailing parks@richmond.ca. The 10 designs that receive the most “likes” will be the winners of the 2018 Street Banner Contest and displayed across Richmond.

This year’s submissions include a broad range of visual art forms, from photography to mixed media collage. All reflect themes representing the city’s diverse beauty including culture, urban farming, active living and transportation.

More than 1,000 street banners will be produced featuring the winning images, and installed on street light poles to enhance Richmond’s spirit and beautify the downtown core and gateways from March 2019 to February 2020.
