The Gatineau, ta signature! contest ran from May 29 to June 22 through the city's Facebook page. To enter, participants had to be between 12 and 24 years of age, and residents of, or attending a school in, Gatineau. The challenge was to create a graffiti signature for Gatineau.
The winner was Marin Mitrasinovic's depiction of the word “Gatineau”. The jury chose this work because it combined the graphic graffiti style with the city's traditional logo.
From now on, the winning signature will replace the traditional Ville de Gatineau logo on communications tools connected to the tags and graffiti prevention and support program for youth.
