2019 #shoWcAse in Pixels
Formerly known as the Banners in the Terrace Competition, the annual exhibition of artwork from Local Governments will be displayed in a new format and venue this year – on the iconic digital tower at the heart of Yagan Square in Perth City.

Traditionally, the artwork, in the form of physical banners, were hung on the poles along St Georges and Adelaide Terrace. This year, WALGA has the opportunity to display digital artwork designs on the 45-metre high tower at Yagan Square, which features a circular screen with 14 columns, representing the 14 Noongar language groups. This new format of display means our participants are no longer restricted to PVC canvas - creativity is encouraged.

As one of the State’s largest ongoing community arts projects, this event is widely acknowledged as being one of the most colourful and vibrant displays throughout the year, and we are very appreciative of the support provided by Screenwest for this year’s competition.

In 2019 the artworks will be displayed on the digital tower screen of Yagan Square from  Monday, 29 July to Sunday, 11 August .

From Monday, 29 July to Sunday, 11 August (excluding Sunday, 4 August), the categories that will be played are:
  • 12:00pm – Junior Primary and Upper Primary (18 minutes, followed by 4 minutes of external advertising)
  • 12:22pm – Secondary and Community/ Amateur Artists (18 minutes, followed by 4 minutes of external advertising)
  • 12:44pm – Professional/Digital (9 minutes).
Please note: ScreenWest will not be screening the artwork on Sunday, 4 August due to a live broadcast that day.
