Book a community promotion sign

Community promotion signs are a simple and effective way to publicise your City of Greater Geelong (CoGG) event.


Who can book a sign?

  • Not-for-profit organisations or community groups advertising events of significant cultural interest to the local community.

  • The event must be held within the City of Greater Geelong boundaries.


How much does it cost?

  • The cost of a sign booking is $110 and includes installation and removal of the sign. The cost is the same whether you book 1 sign or 4 signs and whether you book for 1 week or 4 weeks.

  • You can pay securely using a credit card at the time of making your booking. We accept Visa and Mastercard. A payment processing fee of 0.4% applies to credit and debit card payments.
       


How many signs can I book?

  • You can book up to 4 signs at up to 4 different locations for up to 4 weeks (depending on availability).

  • You can only have 1 booking per event.


Sign artwork requirements

To ensure your event receives maximum exposure, we recommend minimal information on your sign artwork.

  • The community signs provide a very quick, drive by message

  • Wording should only include the event name and date (main message), location and a website or phone number

  • Sponsor logos should not be the main feature

  • Wording on the sign should be 60 millimetres inside the top and bottom of the sign so it is visible once installed

  • All signs need to be 1200 x 1200 millimetres to fit into frames

  • Signs are to be well presented, prepared and constructed and are not to be offensive

  • No reflective material is to be used on signs - this includes fluorescent paints

  • All signs should be made from ‘corflute’

  • No organisation may display more than 4 signs within council boundaries at any one time

  • No sign shall contain any rotating, revolving or moving parts and cannot be illuminated or flashing

  • All signs will be bolted to the CoGG frames.

  • Signs can only be booked to start on a Monday and finish on a Sunday.

  • All signs are installed and removed on Mondays (unless it is a public holiday, then the sign will be installed or removed on the Tuesday.
