What changes would you like to see in your town?
Scotland’s Towns Partnership invites you to take part in the fourth annual FutureTown Design Competition to gain media profile for your town or city district and a possible keynote slot at one of our national events to present your idea to an audience of town and policy stakeholders! The Scotsman newspaper is our media partner once again for the competition.
Now in its fourth year, the FutureTown Design Competition is aimed at stimulating conversations, provoking ideas and encouraging new approaches to highlight what our towns could look like now and in the future. The winner is chosen by the public through an online vote.
Since its inception the FTDC has showcased a rich variety of innovative yet practical ideas promoting positive change in areas such as the local environment, the public realm and accessibility, low carbon and sustainable living, digital technologies and tourism, arts and culture, history and heritage, and health and well-being.
Last year’s winners, Paisley Community Trust, captured public attention with their proposal for a new cultural and creative quarter in Paisley town centre. A full montage of shortlisted entries for 2017 is available here.
Applications close at 5pm on Wednesday 31 October 2018.
