Welcome to the Public Space Ideas Competition

This is an exciting opportunity to reimagine, inspire, create, include, and bring awareness to great public spaces across Greater Sydney.

We want to see your ideas, as ambitions, wild and bold as possible. Think as big or as small as you like without limitations, don’t hold back. This is a competition to stretch our thinking about public spaces and create ideas and new ways of thinking in an evolving city.

Brought to you by the Committee for Sydney and the NSW Government, we are calling on you to submit your idea for new or reimagined public space. Winning ideas will be profiled at our awards event and through our media partner the SMH. With an incredible jury, five award categories, and four additional awards, this is your opportunity to help shape a new conversation about public space in Sydney.

We will be announcing the winners of our Public Space Ideas Competition on 4 November 2020 during an online Awards Ceremony from 5.30-6.30pm AEDT. If you’d like to tune in for free, register here.

Following the announcement of these awards, there will also be a People’s Choice award, determined by public vote through our media partner, the Sydney Morning Herald. This will go live on 5 November until 19 November, so don’t forget to cast your vote!
