Art enthusiasts can now cast their vote for their favourite beautified wrap in Niagara-on-the-Lake Hydro’s annual hydro transformer art contest. 

All art submissions can be viewed at the Niagara Pumphouse Arts Centre from now through Oct. 22, but public voting ends Sept. 9.

NOTL Hydro has selected three transformer boxes for beautification: one in front of the Legion on King Street, one at Fort George and the other at Fort Mississauga.

Two of the winners will be selected by a jury and the third will be chosen by community vote – the People’s Choice Award. 

People must cast their votes at the Pumphouse at 247 Ricardo St. and open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This year’s theme is a nod to the military heritage of Canada.

The three winning artists will be awarded a $500 prize. 

NOTL Hydro has been partnering with the Pumphouse and the NOTL Communities in Bloom Committee since 2019 to organize this contest. 

Together, they have decorated nine hydro boxes since launching the competition.

The winners will be announced Sept. 15.
