Kids in Port Coquitlam are being invited to help brighten spirits in a big way during the COVID-19 pandemic.
As in billboard-big.
The city is offering space on its digital billboards to display artwork with hopeful, encouraging messages about staying safe and healthy submitted by local kids. It’s part of an initiative launched by Outfront Media Canada, the company that manages the displays.
“We’re sure we could all use some uplifting at this time,” PoCo Mayor Brad West said, adding the artwork will also be featured on the city’s website and shared through its social media channels.
The city’s billboards are located at Lougheed highway and Oxford Street and on the Mary Hill Bypass near the CP Rail overpass.
The artwork, on the theme of “We are all in this together,” can be digital images of drawings, paintings, crafts — even handwritten notes. They should be in a horizontal format, 11 inches wide by 8.5-inches high, and submitted as a PNG, GIF or JPG file via www.portcoquitlam.ca/we-get-you-kids-at-home-artwork.
