Submissions sought for street banner competition
Published 12:04 PDT, Mon August 10, 2020
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:
• Active Living
• Urban Landscape
• Island City
• The Arts
For complete contest rules and guidelines, and to submit entries, please visit www.richmond.ca/banners.
