Langley mural contest for students

The Downtown Langley Business Association is hosting a student mural competition.

Post-secondary students are being asked to get creative in the new year in downtown Langley.

The Downtown Langley Business Association is hosting a student mural competition with the goals of producing murals that engage communities, promote activities that are interactive, educational, or cultural tourism opportunities, and enhance the Langley City streetscape.

“We are thrilled to be tapping in to the student talent in the Lower Mainland, and excited to add to the murals in our community as well”, said Teri James, Executive Director of the Downtown Langley Business Association.

“This contest is free to enter, and all supplies will be sponsored by Cloverdale Paint Langley and the DLBA. So all they need to provide is their creativity and their time”.

Students are asked to submit a formal application with a scaled colour rendering of their proposed project. Five winning designs will be chosen in March, and painted in May or June of 2019.

Entries are accepted until Feb. 28, and can be submitted to info@downtownlangley.com, and all information, including an electronic registration form can be found at https://www.downtownlangley.com/whats-up-downtown.
