Winners of Richmond Street Banner Contest announced

Winners of the 2023 Richmond Street Banner Contest

The 10 winners and designs of Richmond's annual Street Banner Contest were unveiled at Monday's city council meeting.

The unveiling celebration was the first in three years since the COVID-19 pandemic put a halt to many in-person events.

Winning designs will have their street banners displayed around major streets in the city and areas within Richmond's downtown core.

A complete set of the 10 winning banners are also on display in the Richmond City Hall atrium.

A total of 550 designs were submitted this year and a judging panel, made up of community members, selected 20 finalists before public voting was held to determine the final 10 winners.

All entries reflected one of the following 10 themes: Community, Connection, Nature, Neighbourhood, Sustainability, The Arts, Urban Landscape, Waterfront, Wellness and Wildlife.

This year's contest received more than 6,500 votes over a two-week voting period.
