Sydney Lunar Festival is attended by more than 1.3 million people each year and celebrates the city’s diverse cultural communities.

We’re seeking to appoint up to 4 artists and creatives to design the banner gallery.

Successful concepts will use the street banner network throughout the city centre in a corridor-like effect along key thoroughfares and transit routes.

Your concept for the banner gallery should:

  • reflect the Year of the Dragon or draw inspiration from one of the communities that celebrate the Lunar New Year
  • be highly engaging and appeal to a broad audience
  • demonstrate artistic excellence, innovation, and a creative approach
  • be designed in line with the banner specifications
  • consider the sequencing of banners with up to 6 designs permitted in each banner gallery location.

Find out more about the banner gallery and apply by Monday 1 May.
