A Celebration of Swans festival poster

Every year, the Department of Environment and Yukon Energy produce a collectible poster featuring art that celebrates the arrival of spring and swans. This year is extra special because it's the 30th anniversary of A Celebration of Swans. 

The winner of this year’s art contest is Stanislav Hermak. Chera Hunchuk did the poster design and layout. 

Winning poster design for the 2024 season.
