Street Banner Contest - City of North Vancouver Public Art Program
Call for K-12 Student Art work

THEME:  "Canada 150 - What Makes Canada Great"

January 2016 - The City of North Vancouver Public Art Program is seeking designs for street banners that will fly high along Lonsdale and Esplanade Avenues from May 2016 through November 2017.  In anticipation of Canada’s 150 anniversary of confederation in 2017, K-12 students in North Vancouver are invited to create an original banner design that reflects the theme of “What Makes Canada Great”.

Up to three banner designs will be selected by a panel of judges made up of representatives from the North Vancouver Public Art Advisory Board, the City of North Vancouver, and a local artistic professional.

The winning banner designs will be professionally produced and the successful student artists will receive a banner set for their own use.  All contest entries will be displayed in a public exhibition as part of “May is Arts Month” celebrations.
