Artists across Richmond are invited to submit entries for the annual street banner contest.

This year, the contest aims to capture residents’ day-to-day experiences in their own neighbourhoods. It is open to artists of all ages and abilities. A range of artistic mediums are welcomed including photography, graphic design, collage, watercolour and oil painting.

Submissions will be accepted until Sept. 18 at 5 p.m. A judging panel of community volunteers will narrow down to a shortlist of 20, which can then be voted on by community members through an online system. 

Winning designs will be displayed for one year, beginning next February, on a thousand street banners throughout Richmond’s downtown core and main roadway entrances to the city. In addition, each contest winner will receive a $300 honorarium and a full-sized banner with their design. 

Participants are encouraged to consider the following 10 themes when submitting their entries:

• Resilience

• Community

• Connection

• Wellness

• Active Living

• Urban Landscape

• Nature

• Island City

• The Arts

• Sustainability
