“It is wonderful to see such a robust and active artistic community in Richmond, and we’re fortunate to have these winning designs decorate our city streets,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie.

“Community engagement and the arts are important to Council and this contest is one of the many ways residents can participate in beautifying our city.”

Over 350 designs were submitted through the city’s annual Street Banner Contest where the public voted online for their favourite design – 2,500 votes were casted amongst 10 categories.

This year's winning designs, as well as previous winners, can be seen at Richmond.ca/banners

Last year’s banners will be available for purchase starting April 20 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on weekdays at the Community Services Division reception, 5599 Lynas Lane.

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.
