This year, more than ever, we’re encourage you to love your city! All month long, participating neighbourhoods in Vancouver are showing off LOVE with the Love Your City Contest.

You’ll be able to explore over 16 iconic Vancouver neighbourhoods and find all the fun Instagrammable spots for a chance to win individual prizes in each BIA and a Grand Prize worth over $5000! More information can be found here.

As of Friday, Feb 5th, The West End has THREE installations for you to checkout:

  1. Heart bombing of Jim Deva Plaza
  2. Giant Sweetheart at Bute and Robson (By BeSide)
  3. Giant Sweetheart at English Bay (across from Papi’s)

How to Participate:

Take a walk through the participating neighbourhoods and look for a love-themed art installation in each one. When you discover each one:

  • snap a photo,
  • upload it on Instagram,
  • tag @loveyourcitycontest and @westendbia
  • use the #findlovewestend, as that is how we’ll find your entries

Do all of that, and you will be entered to win a grand prize package from all participating neighbourhoods! We’ll also be running other smaller prizes every few days, so be sure to follow us on Instagram to stay updated.
