Baltimore Avenue needs new banners and a designer to lend some vision

    The University City District will install new banners along Baltimore Avenue next spring, and it’s hoping a local designer can help with the process.

    Applications are being taken for the new 24 x 36 inch banners, which will hang from street lights between 45th and 50th streets, the West Philly Local explains. Through March 2, anyone who fancies themselves a creative type can submit their designs for the banners.

    The winner gets $200 in University City restaurant gift certificates, $300 in cash and his or her artwork on more than 70 banners.
