2014 Heritage Banner Design Contest Winners Announced
Jan 27, 2015
At last night's Regular Meeting, Mayor Lois E. Jackson and Delta Council recognized the winners of Delta's 2014 Heritage Banner Design Contest. Special congratulations are extended to:
- Victoria Heryet, winner of the South Delta category and overall grand prize winner
- Dave Stevens, winner of the North Delta category
- Emily Kettleson, winner of the Child/Youth category
Initiated last spring by the Heritage Advisory Commission, the Heritage Banner Design Contest is a street banner design competition created to raise awareness of Delta's heritage, showcase local artists, and engage the community.
"I am pleased with the winning designs, which are unique to each other, but all represent thought and concept and showcase artistic talent within our community," said Mayor Jackson.
A panel of volunteer judges from Watershed Artworks, South Delta Artists' Guild and the Heritage Advisory Commission reviewed all entries and selected a winner from each of three categories (South Delta, North Delta, and Child/Youth) and one overall grand prize winner of all categories. Winning entries were considered based on creativity, heritage value, visual appeal, and elements of art and design.
Each winner received a $350 honorarium and a street banner with their design. As the grand prize winner, look for Heryet's Symbiotic Harmony banner displayed throughout the municipality alongside Delta's new street banner.
