Just under 2,000 city street Banners are prominently positioned throughout the City.

Second: Chinese New Year, tick
Last: Left the Martin Sharp exhibit at the Museum of Sydney, no tick!
Last: Right, the current exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art - no tick!
visually enhance the City’s streetscape; and,They are not cheap though - but I guess things are relative. Top tier commercials pay $85 per banner. Second tier commercials pay $70 per banner. Whereas, Not-for-Profits pay $18 per banner. In addition, the advertiser has to pay to put the banners up, to take them down, and to launder them, if required. As a ballpark, 100 banners for two weeks could cost $21,500.
promote arts and cultural activities including events, festivals, tourism or civic programs, as well as major sporting and retail events of public interest.
I like them. They are jolly and colourful, AND remind me of the things that are on in the City.
