Yarışma BilgileriGrand Army Plaza is New York City’s greatest unrealized asset. To catalyze Grand Army Plaza’s rebirth, the Design Trust for Public Space, in partnership with the Grand Army Plaza Coalition, has launched this international ideas competition, “Reinventing Grand Army Plaza”, to generate new visions for every aspect of the plaza’s design.

The Reinventing Grand Army Plaza Ideas Competition is open to all interested entrants. Individuals, teams, professionals, students, artists and others are all encouraged to contribute their visions. Multiple submissions from any one individual or team are permitted, although each entry must be submitted under a unique email address.

Application and Entrance Fees
There is a required 30 Dollars fee per entry. At the end of the application process, all entrants will be guided through the payment process. All fees must be paid through PayPal. Submissions will not be finalized until payment is processed.

All entries will be reviewed by the jury anonymously. Thus, all submitted text and images must be free of any marks, logos, or writing that identifies authorship. The presence of any such insignia will result in disqualification.
