Hermiston Downtown Banner Contest Seeks Entries for Area Artists


Local artists are encouraged to help showcase what makes life sweet in Hermiston by entering the 2024 Downtown Banner Contest.

The contest, sponsored by the city of Hermiston and the Hermiston Downtown District, is open to all Hermiston-area residents, with categories for emerging artists (K-12) and adults (19 and older). A winning entry from each age category will be reproduced as vinyl banners and displayed for a year on light posts throughout downtown Hermiston.

Submissions can include painting, drawing, digital art, collage, and printmaking and should incorporate the city’s color palette. Use of text is discouraged, and the entry should represent what makes life sweet in Hermiston. Read the full guidelines here.

The winner in each category will receive a $100 prize. Entries must be submitted before April 19.

The banner program is a partnership between the city of Hermiston and CGI Digital, which supplies the banners and manages the program at no cost to the taxpayers.  CGI Digital allows interested local businesses to purchase advertising space on the banners.
