It’s not yet a wrap.
The District of Squamish has extended its deadline for the hydro box wrap design competition. The municipality, Squamish Arts Council and the Downtown Squamish Business Improvement Association are on the hunt for creative designs to wrap three hydro boxes in Squamish’s heart.
The deadline for entries has been extended until Friday, Jan. 18, 2013. Designs should be influenced by the uniqueness of Squamish and the surrounding community, stated a district press release. The design should also capture Squamish’s brand as the Outdoor Recreation Capital of Canada, the release noted.
The competition is open to all Squamish residents, including youth, students, professional and emerging artists. Prizes of $500 to $750 will be awarded to the winning designs.
The competition comes on the heels of Squamish’s street banner design contest. Local painter Chili Thom’s and graphic designer Kristen Dillon’s work was selected to hang along Squamish’s downtown streets.
The duo created a bright image of the northern view from Squamish, with Mount Garibaldi as the backdrop. The district anticipates putting their work up in the spring of 2013.
