52nd Street Banner Design Contest

Attention West Philly artists! The Enterprise Center is seeking design entries from local artists for new street pole banners on 52nd Street.

 We’re seeking design concepts that will positively represent 52nd Street culture, and that community members will be proud of.

 In addition to their artwork being featured prominently on 52nd Street, the winning artist will receive a $2,500 prize and will be featured on The Enterprise Center’s social media platforms.

 The winning entry will be selected by a panel that includes staff from The Enterprise Center and representatives from the West Philly arts scene.


  • The banner design concept should include “52nd Street” or “52nd St” or “52nd" somewhere on the banner, and artists are encouraged but not required to explore incorporation of messages such as “Shop 52nd St” (as an example).
  • The banner design concept dimensions should be compatible with a banner that is 24” wide by 48” high. The final, winning design may need to be modified to conform with slightly different ratios or dimensions, as needed.
  • One design concept per artist – pick your best concept for submission!
  • Preference will be given to artists who live in a West Philadelphia zip code.
  • Submissions are due by 11:59 PM on August 31st.
