Creatives, get to work! This year the theme honours front-line workers who made incredible sacrifices

See your work front and centre at The Waterfront Market!

A tribute to the people who faced the unknown every day, while the rest of us stayed home. From those working in hospitals and caring for patients affected by COVID-19, to those delivering food and packages and of course the thousands of individuals who worked through the night to disinfect the city to help prevent the spread of the virus.

The city owes a deep gratitude to these people and the mural designs should reflect that.

Take inspiration from the 2019 winner!

The important bits:

Submit your work BEFORE October 15th!
