RIBA launch design competition for Island kids

We love the sound of this design competition for children on the Island. We reckon there could be some excellent examples of creativity coming out of the competition.

Thanks to Steph Austin for sharing the detail. Ed

With the Isle of Wight Society & Conservation and RIBA Award Ceremony just around the corner, we are calling on children from eight to 14 years old across the Island to design a bridge over the Ryde Esplanade, linking Appley Tower to the children’s playground and to create a new use for Appley Tower.

We would like you to be as creative, outrageous and imaginative as possible!

All entries exhibited
Anything and everything will be considered! All entries will be exhibited at the Awards Ceremony and both the winners and short-listed entries will be published here.

The first five entries we receive, will win a set of drawing pencils.

Fancy having some fun and getting involved?

Here is how to play
Find Appley Tower, decide on your design, give it a name, and write two sentences describing your design.

Then prepare a visual description no larger than A4 square which can be in any graphic format you wish, collage, drawings, 3D model out of any material, painting etc.

Finally, submit your design (maximum size A4 square) on the front and written description of your creation on the back along with your name, age, address and contact telephone number.

Post your entry to the following address by the 8th March 2013:
The Isle of Wight Society
East Cowes Heritage Centre
8 Clarence Road
East Cowes
PO32 6EP

What happens next?
Judging takes place on 10th March 2013. The shortlist will be announced on 15th March 2013.

All short-listed entries will be invited to the Awards Ceremony and the winner and commendations announced at the Award Ceremony on Friday 19th April, 2013.
