2) They must be permanent displays.
3) A location that has more than one giant next to each other (Paul Bunyan & Babe) should have only one waymark placed for all of the giants.
4) Giants must have been originally installed to advertise a place or product such as the examples given. Giant artwork will not be accepted.
