Scotland’s Towns Partnership is inviting all towns and city neighbourhoods to take part in the third annual FutureTown Design Competition. Enter to gain media profile for your town and the chance for a keynote slot to present your idea at the annual Towns Tea Party! The Scotsman newspaper is media partner once again for the competition.

Shortlisted entries will also be displayed in a showcase exhibition at Scotland’s Towns Conference on 21 November, which will be attended by the Minister for Local Government and Housing, and town stakeholders from across sectors and communities.  

The deadline for entries is 5pm on Monday 6 November. Scotland's Towns Partnership will shortlist entries, and then the winner will be decided by a public vote held during Scotland's Towns Week, 20 - 26 November 2017. Applications can be sent to: ewan@scotlandstowns.org.

Applying is very simple, and there is no application form for this competition. You can simply submit an image, sketch, photograph or other visual design, accompanied by a short description of your idea and what it could change or achieve. See last year’s shortlist for examples.

Therefore we ask you to get creative and send a sketch or photograph, image or written idea for a space in your town centre - this can be innovative and creative yet practical and should look to provide genuine potential for development within your town. Whether a unique bin design, building redevelopment, cultural initiative, transport feature, or a new use for existing public or vacant space…feel free to think outside of the box!
