Banners in the Terrace Competition
The 'Banners in the Terrace' competition is back for 2018!
As one of the State’s largest single community arts projects, this event is widely acknowledged as being one of the most colourful and vibrant displays throughout the year. The annual exhibition of banners along St Georges and Adelaide Terraces in Perth, allows communities and regions throughout Western Australia to represent themselves to thousands of people traveling along these routes each day. Previous displays have been outstanding due to the great diversity and creativity of the images along the Terrace.
In 2017, local Wickham youth Clayton Hahn received a Commendation for his banner design representation of the City of Karratha. The aim of the “Banners in the Terrace” project is to involve the community.The City of Karratha is holding a competition to find the best local design and we are looking for design entries from individual young people, schools and students, community youth groups and young professional artists within the City of Karratha region.
Entries from young people aged 11-25 years will be considered.
The theme for the Western Australia Local Government Association’s 2018 Banners in the Terrace competition is “Ready & Relevant”. Artists may choose to build their banner design around the theme, however, adhering to the theme is not a judge’s requirement.With so much local talent within our arts community, it should be a tough choice for the judges!Judges will vote for the best local design, which will be digitally printed on a banner, exhibited along St Georges and Adelaide Terraces in the City of Perth for all visitors and commuters to see, and be submitted for entry in the state-wide Banners in the Terrace competition.
