PEDAW Mural Contest: WINNERS!

As you may know, we recently partnered with the Vancouver Graffiti Management Team to hold unique PEDAW Mural Contest inviting BC amateur artists to paint or draw 2 dimensional artwork that reflects the question:

“What does ‘love our bodies, love ourselves’ mean to you?”  

The purpose of this contest is to brighten up the streets of Vancouver by showing everyone we can ‘love our bodies, love ourselves’ and promote positive body image through public art!
