Welcome to Nelson. The City’s welcome signs are one of a kind. While beloved by many, the quirky wooden signs have reached the end of their lifespan and need to be replaced. Through the Province of British Columbia’s Tourism Dependent Communities Fund, the City has received funding to update the signs. Because the Welcome to Nelson signs are the first impression of the city for both residents and visitors, it is important that they reflect our community. This competition invites designers and artists to submit their concepts for the replacement Welcome to Nelson signs.
