Artistically Decorated Utility Boxes
 allows ratings
Description:
To locate artistically decorated utility, electrical, and traffic signal boxes.
Expanded Description:
This category is for utility, electrical, or traffic signal boxes that have been hand-painted; vinyl-wrapped with a mural, photograph, or an artistic design; or covered with some sort of artistic medium that disguises what they actually are. Many communities around the world have programs or allow artists to change the appearance of these eyesores to make their towns and cities more aesthetically pleasing.

We are only looking for UTILITY BOXES, not UTILITY BUILDINGS. If a structure has a human-size door intended for human entry into the structure, then it cannot be waymarked here.

***We will only accept waymarks that are sanctioned utility box art, no graffiti/vandalism will be accepted.***

LANGUAGE NOTE: We recognize waymarking as a global hobby and welcome waymarks from all countries. However, if the waymark is written in a language other than English, an English translation is required. The English translation does not need to be perfect, just clear enough for the Officers and other viewers to understand what the waymark is about. And, as always, please cite your sources. Thank you!

Instructions for Posting a Artistically Decorated Utility Boxes Waymark:

Only one artistically decorated utility box entry per submission will be accepted unless there are two or more adjacent utility boxes painted in the same manner. In this case, the multiple boxes may be lumped into one submission. Please note that some submissions will be evaluated on a merit basis even if they do not meet the exact letter of the posting requirements.

1. NAME: A name that describes the utility box art and its location should be included in the title. Generally this should be the city/town, state and/or country -- whatever is appropriate to its location.

Example 1: Penguin with Chopsticks - San Diego, CA

Example 2: Hungry Piranhas - Brisbane, Australia

2. COORDINATES: Please post coordinates that you have taken yourself with a GPSr.

SEPTEMBER 11, 2013: PLEASE NOTE THE NEW PHOTO REQUIREMENTS BELOW.

3. PHOTOS: All four sides of the box need to be photographed (this could be done with four individual photographs, one of each side, or two photographs with two sides clearly visible per photograph, or a combination of these). An additional photo showing the top of the box (if it can be photographed) would be appreciated. In addition, if an artist's name is identified on the box, a close-up of this information also must be included. A GPSr photo is not required.

4. LONG DESCRIPTION: A Long Description that is different from the Quick Description is required. Additional information about the utility box should be included if available on the box or the internet (e.g., artist's name, title of the art, year painted or vinyl wrapped, location description). At a minimum, please describe the art on the box, as well as its location (e.g., street name, intersection, community, etc.). If we find that additional information about the utility box is easily available on the internet, but it's not included in the Long Description, we reserve the right to decline the submission.

Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
When visiting a waymark, please take a picture that clearly shows the artistically decorated utility box. If you have a picture with yourself at the utility box, that would be great too. Also, tell us if you liked the art on the box.
