Amateur and professional photographers can have their best snaps seen by thousands of commuters a day as part of a new city of Port Coquitlam program.
The operations and parks departments need pictures from shutterbugs who work, live or play in PoCo to use as vinyl wraps on traffic utility boxes.
The aim of the program is to liven up intersections and other green spaces with public art, adding colour and history/community identity to an area as well as helping to reduce graffiti.
The city seeks an art/heritage theme for the downtown boxes, an active living focus for park boxes and a botanical/landscape image for neighbourhood boxes.
Drop off up to three high-resolution photographs, in jpg and CMYK format, be 300 dpi and on a compact disk, at Leigh Square Community Arts Village.
300 dpi and be 3375 high x 2625 wide pixels for printing use. Winning entries will get $25 along with a photo credit on the wrapped utility box.
