POSTER frames recently mounted as a trial on six rubbish bin covers and the bush shelter in Augusta’s main street may provide an opportunity to promote local events, and the Augusta Chamber of Commerce and Industry is seeking ideas on this.
The shire council recently gave permission for the poster frames to be attached to the bin covers and bus shelter, and last week posters made from some of the photographs entered in last year’s Augusta photographic competition were the first to go into the frames to promote the town and its surroundings.
One of the people behind the poster frames trial, Eion Lindsay from Deckchair Gourmet, said there was also opportunity for organisers of Augusta events, like the Anaconda Adventure Race, to use the poster frames to promote their events.
Mr Lindsay said a small fee would be charged and posters would not be allowed to be displayed for more than six months.
Commercial posters promoting products or businesses would not be allowed, only posters displaying a small sponsor logo and promoting an event in Augusta would be permitted, and all promotional material to be displayed must be approved by the Augusta CCI and the Augusta-Margaret River Tourism Authority, he said.
Mr Lindsay said the CCI wanted to hear ideas from the public on other potential promotional uses for the poster frames.
