Richmond Street Banner Contest open for submissions
04 August 2021
The City is calling on all creative people to submit a range of designs that highlight their daily Richmond experiences for the 29th annual Street Banner Contest. Photography, graphic design, collage, watercolour and oil paintings are a few of the mediums that have been successful in the past, and they are all welcome again this year.
Participants are encouraged to consider the following 10 themes when submitting their entries:
- Active Living
- Urban Landscape
- Island City
- The Arts
Artists of all ages and abilities are invited to share their vision of Richmond’s places, experiences and activities. Submissions that fit the banner contest criteria will be accepted from Monday, August 9 to Friday, September 17, 2021 at 5 p.m.
A judging panel consisting of community volunteers will shortlist 20 submissions, which will be posted on the City of Richmond Street Banner website. The community can then vote for their favourite designs on the City’s Let’s Talk Richmond engagement platform (www.LetsTalkRichmond.ca) and 10 winners will be selected. The winning designs will be showcased on 1,000 street banners throughout Richmond. Contest winners will be awarded a $300 honorarium along with a full-sized banner featuring their winning submission.
To acknowledge and appreciate the dedication and hard work put in by participants, all of the submissions will be posted on the street banner website for public viewing after the 10 winning designs have been announced.
