Richmond street banner contest voting now open
Published 10:51 PDT, Mon September 25, 2023
The City of Richmond invites the public to select 10 street banners that will fly high over city streets in 2024. This voting process through LetsTalkRichmond.ca gives residents a direct say in the beautification of the city by selecting their preferred designs from this year’s 20 vibrant and colourful street banner contest finalists. The public can also view the designs from the city’s website at richmond.ca/banners and submit votes by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. All votes must be cast by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 8.
The following themes representing Richmond’s unique characteristics were reflected in over 389 design submissions: Active Living; Community; Connection; Wildlife; Culture and Heritage; Urban Landscape; Nature; Island City; The Arts; and Sustainability. A judging panel of Richmond artists narrowed down submissions to the final 20. The 10 designs (one from each theme) that receive the most votes from the public will be named winners of the Street Banner Contest.
The winning images will be printed on over 1,000 street banners. They will be installed on banner poles from March 2024 to February 2025 to enhance the city’s spirit and beautify the downtown core and gateways.
Richmond’s street banner contest is a part of the broader Partners for Beautification program, which invites community members to become actively involved in the beautification of their city. For more information on this program, visit richmond.ca/parks/about/beautification.
