Blue Sky Competition

By Competition

Update: Due TODAY ! Don’t forget ! Entry details below. We’re delighted to be a conduit for you to find out more about the Competition for the Outer-T of Queens Wharf here in Wellington. It’s been noted before that it may be coming up, and here it is at last – Wellington Waterfront Ltd have now formally announced the Ideas competition, to be known as BLUE-SKY the Outer-T.

“Your Idea for the heart of Wellington Waterfront”

It’s due by 5pm on 24 August (to Shed 6 on Queens Wharf), and should not exceed 2xA4 or 1xA3 in size. Don’t put your name on the actual entry – it is a completely ‘blind’ judging process. They are looking for ideas – through words, through photos, designs, drawings – any way that you can get your ideas across. They really are looking for a great selection of proposals – as wide ranging as possible, to inform the way forward for the city to celebrate the centrepiece of our world-class Waterfront promenade.

Judges include a fantastic range of people, including Her Worship the Mayor Kerry Prendergast, the head of Urban Design in Victoria Stuart Niven, Michael Cashin and Ian Pike from Wellington Waterfront, Di Buchan from the Civic Trust, Morrie Love as a cultural advisor, Alistair Cattanach as an Engineer, Mike Gould as an Architect, Fran Wilde from the Greater Wellington Regional Council, and Peter Biggs from Clemenger BBDO.

“The Competition is all about Concepts and ideas not expertise.”

Who can enter? Anyone. Everyone. Groups. Individuals. Young people. Old people. Small people. Tall people. You get the idea. Actually – if you HAVE the idea, then enter, and you may win.
