The City of Dawson Creek is updating the Official Community Plan (OCP), the City’s highest level policy document that will guide future decision-making over the next 15-20 years. The City is inviting community members to create art that visually showcases what they value and love about Dawson Creek, and what their vision is for the community in the future.

Community members of all ages are asked to unleash their creativity in this contest. By capturing what they love most about their community or how they envision Dawson Creek in the future. Whether it is a unique landmark or landscape, vibrant culture, or diverse people, we want you to showcase the beauty that binds us together. Draw, paint, design or take a photograph showing what you love about Dawson Creek for a chance to have it incorporated in the updated OCP.
