Gunnedah will decide what will feature in its newest mural in the CBD.
More than $20,000 from the Drought Communities Program will fund the artwork, which will also be designed and painted by locals.
Arts Gunnedah is driving the project and is asking the public to vote on one of four mural designs, which include images ranging from dancing to sailing to native animals and local landmarks.
The chosen site for the mural is the alleyway between Conadilly and Little Conadilly streets, alongside the colourful street art created by locals as part of the Vibrant Precincts Project.
Arts Gunnedah president Michelle Wellham said seven artists started working on collaborative images in late May and these were then brought together to create the four different murals.
"It's a really important opportunity for Arts Gunnedah and Gunnedah," she said.
Ms Wellham believes the alleyway has the potential to become an "urban park" if more seating and plants are added and "people were encouraged to look after the space and protect it".
The chosen mural will be projected onto the fence so the outline can be traced and filled in.
Arts Gunnedah will call for expressions of interest when the mural is ready to be painted.
To vote for one of the four mural designs, visit Gunnedah Bicentennial Creative Arts Gallery and pop your slip in the box provided. All voting slips will go in the draw to win a $50 Shop Local gift card. The draw is on August 10.
Kids are also included in the fun and can pick up a colouring-in page of the designs from the gallery or downloaded them from the Arts Gunnedah Facebook page.
