FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Year of the Pig Chinatown Banner Competition is Open

The Downtown Winnipeg BIZ, in conjunction with the Winnipeg Chinese Cultural and Community Centre (WCCCC), is once again conducting a design competition for Chinatown Banners. An honorarium of $800.00 will be awarded for the successful banner design. All submissions must be dropped off or mailed to the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ and be received no later than 1:00 p.m. January 11, 2019.

Competition Background
A goal of the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ is to implement and use street banners, to unify the downtown and highlight significant buildings and key districts throughout the downtown.

Chinatown Banner Competition
All those in creative fields are called on to submit their designs for the 2019 Chinatown street banners.

The winning design will emphasize the Year of the Pig, at the same time complementing the existing Chinatown district banner in terms of colour, type and graphics, since they will be viewed consecutively on the street. Year of the Pig banners will be mounted in the six square blocks bounded by Main Street, Princess Street, Logan Avenue and James Avenue.
