Have your photograph or designs featured on traffic cabinets and bear-proof collection bins in the region.

(Fort McMurray, AB – June 21, 2019) – The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo is looking for submissions from local residents that showcase the region’s natural beauty, embodies a sense of community, promotes physical activity, and highlights local culture and heritage. 

Selected photographs and digital illustrations will be transferred onto a vinyl wrap to be installed on selected traffic cabinets and bear-proof collection bins throughout the region. 

“The objective of the project is to deter graffiti vandalism by reducing the availability of blank space for tagging while beautifying the community with public art created by its residents,” said program coordinator Megan Hull. “This project aligns with the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo Strategic Plan supporting arts and culture.”

Traffic cabinets and bear-proof collection bins have been identified to be wrapped with images that represent our region. The number of awarded photographs will be based on site suitability, available budget, and feedback from the selection panel.
