City seeks Holiday Light Show ornament designs

Danville Parks and Recreation is calling for design submissions from the community for the ornament sold at its annual Community Holiday Light Show. Since the light show’s inception in 2014, Parks and Recreation has designed each ornament in-house or with a contracted designer. With a conscious effort to increase community involvement in all Parks and Recreation events, community members are encouraged to submit their designs for the first ever community-designed ornament.  

Submissions are required to be Danville related and feature the iconic HOME Sign element somewhere in the design. Previous ornament designs included a train over the river, a trolley in town, and smokestacks from the Schoolfield site.  

In addition to the two requirements listed above, entrants are required to adhere to the following full list of guidelines: 

  • Artwork must be submitted by August 18 
  • Designs must fit in a 2.5-inch circle 
  • Must include the HOME sign element 
  • Must be Danville related 
  • If chosen, the artist must be able to provide an editable file in Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator 
  • Rights must be released to Danville Parks and Recreation to use the artwork 

The artist's work that is chosen will be recognized by Danville Parks and Recreation for this year's design. “We are so excited to open up this opportunity to the residents of our community,” said Taylor Roberts, Special Events Coordinator. “The light show is all about community and togetherness—we wanted to extend that feeling even more so with this custom ornament design. It truly will be one of a kind and a special contribution from a community member.” 

 Artists interested in submitting can review the online submission form at this link.

Questions regarding the ornament's requirements, submission guidelines, and other general inquiries can be made by emailing taylor.roberts@danvilleva.gov or calling (434) 793-4636.
