BANNERS

 

Each year, the Village of Lions Bay sponsors a banner contest to renew the many banners within the Village and along the highway.  Lions Bay Arts manages this process on behalf of the Village.

In 2017 we had six entries which were displayed on the lawn in front of the Lions Bay Store during our Arts and Garden Festival.  We asked that anyone enjoying the banners vote on which they most liked.

This was a new approach to the final selection of the winning banner and we believe was very successful in engaging our community as well as some visitors.  Rebecca Montgomery, a local resident and long-time artist and member of Lions Bay Arts, was the successful artist, having submitted a banner that represented “Sea to Sky”, our ongoing theme.

We encourage all artists to submit their creative inspirations, both to receive recognition for their work and ultimately, to be selected as the winner of the banner contest for the year.  A $500 honorarium is paid to the winning artist.
