"Morph My City Challenge" and Competition Deadline


Morph My City Challenge (MMCC) is a two-part innovation competition that will encourage and reward radical new approaches to sustainable urban planning. The Challenge consists of two prizes, both calling for innovative solution for sustainable designing problems. The Prizes are internationally advertised and are set up to draw the most innovative solutions from around the world. 

2040 Prize - $50,000 (CAD) contract

The big challenge of today is to transform our existing cities into more sustainable cities. This is exactly what this Prize is aiming for. We will reward the team that comes up with the best plan of how to gradually morph Regina into a green utopia by the year 2040. We are not looking for the most detailed plan but for the best concept for how to redesign this place!

The winner will receive a contract with a total value of $50,000(CAD) (of which the terms are to be negotiated).

Greenfield Design Prize - $10,000(CAD)

It is aiming for radical and creative ideas of how to construct an all new neighbourhood. The competition is based on an empty plot of land that makes it possible to unleash the imagination and pull all the stops. The end product should be an intrinsic city part where the air is clean and the constructs of buildings and systems are sustainable.

The winner will receive a $10,000(CAD) cash prize.


Submissions are accepted between:  9th January- 29th of May, 2012, and further information is available at www.morphmycitychallenge.com. Finalists will be invited to pitch their plans to big city mayors and city planners at the 2012 National Infrastructure Summit in Regina, Canada.

I would be most grateful if you could pass this information on to any relevant contacts.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly. I look forward to hearing from you!

Kind regards,
