   What is the project about?
The Traffic Graffix Community Art Competition is a Banyule City Council graffiti prevention
initiative. The aim is to give local artists the opportunity to publicly display their work by painting
directly onto a VicRoads traffic signal box or a Telstra utility box, to reduce the reoccurrence of
graffiti on the boxes and to create a more vibrant and interesting streetscape.
A panel of judges including representatives from Vic Roads, Telstra and Banyule council will
decide the winners. Monetary prizes will be awarded for the best designs under the following
   •      Best Design                                                            $350
   •      Runner Up Best Design                                                  $250
   •      Best Design (25 yrs and under)                                         $300
   •      Best School Design                                                     $250

    You can then pick up your paint kit and start painting your allocated VicRoads Traffic
    Signal box or Telstra Utility Box. You have four weeks to complete your box.
    Upon completion return your paint kit with some photos of the finished artwork. All
    participants will be notified of the winning designs of the competition.
    Applications must be received by Friday 1st of August 08 with designs painted by
    Friday 31st August 08 to be eligible for the 2008 Awards Night which will be held in

    Designs should interpret one (or more) of the following themes:
     • the environment;
     • the character, culture or history of the area;
     • creativity;
     • change;
     • communication; and
     • movement.
  These themes are all relevant to the project as we wish to change the perception of street
  art in our environment whilst still being mindful of the culture, character and history of the
  area. For any change to take place we need good communication in order to move forward.
  Your art works will be communicated to a moving audience as go by. This will help to
  change the area into a more interesting urban environment.
    You should briefly describe how your design relates to themes in your application.
    You may wish to do a graffiti style design; this is fine, but you cannot include any tags.
    All visible sides of the box must be painted. Therefore designs show each side of the box.
    The average VicRoads box is 73cm wide, 40cm deep and 130 cm high. The average
    Telstra box is 70 cm wide, 120 cm high and 45 cm deep.
    Your signature must be included in the design, as it will appear on the signal box.
    Signatures may not exceed 20 cm by 5 cm and may include the copy write symbol.

      Your design must not cover the information sings on the signal box. We will provide tape
      to mask off the signs, and the key locks, so you do not get paint on them.
      Your design must not be offensive, or contain any traffic lights, signs or signals.
      Designs should not be too dark in colour, so as not to overheat the electrics in the boxes.
      Designs must not include any breach of intellectual property, trade marks, brands,
      business names, images of drugs, or involve attaching anything to the box.

What do you submit?
      A colour copy of your design, showing each side of the box
      A completed copy of the application form
      This includes your contact details, the name your design, a brief description of how it
      relates to the themes, and a brief description of your art experience.

What equipment do you need?
Banyule City Council provides approved artists with a Traffic Graffix Pack. Each pack contains
Solver Brite Glo paint (undercoat and primary colours plus, white and black), safety vests,
witches hats, plastic drop sheets and masking tape.

Artists need to provide paintbrushes and cleaning products. Artists need to comply with safety
and environmental guidelines.
