About The Competition
The competition is designed to generate new thinking; to acknowledge the history of public health and landscape initiatives; and most of all, to offer a platform for entrants to engage with the debate about the future of our public spaces.
Submissions are invited for an open ideas competition to address the demands that COVID-19 is making on the landscapes of our Cities and Towns. The competition, organised by the Landscape Institute is supported by GreenBlue Urban, Ground Control, Hardscape, Selux and Vestre.
The aim of the competition is to respond to the current debates on the design and use of our urban landscape in light of the COVID-19 crisis.

Entrants may base their proposal on any site in the UK or overseas. This could be a neighbourhood which may have become familiar to the entrants through running, walking or cycling over the past few weeks or a place that you pass through on your way to work or university.
The focus of the competition is on high streets, squares, parks and other similar spaces.
Entrants should assume that there are no constraints such as land ownership, land prices, budgets or planning restrictions. Although proposals should address a particular site, entrants may choose to propose methods, systems or elements which could be replicated in any location.
Entries can range from a series of interventions to bold landmark statements, but they must provide the public with a unique outdoor experience which demonstrates a keen sensitivity to the chosen site.
