The competition is in two primary stages - juried and public voting - with additional stages of review.
The jury has yet to be finalized. When it is, it will be posted to the competition website. It will include the following:
Phase 1 - Jury
Artistic Excellence: The primary criterion for the project is artistic excellence. Does the proposal represent innovative ideas? Form? Community participation? Ecological values?
In addition, a proposal will be evaluated for feasibility and how well it answers the following questions:
Phase 2 - Public
The public will be asked to vote for their favorite proposal from a pool of no more than 3 finalists short-listed by the professional jury.
The submission site will be online at least 2 weeks prior to the submission deadline of November 18.
Phase 1: Proposals for the Jury
Names, Roles, and Residency of Team Members
Relevant previous experience
• Prepare a budget for of no more than $75,000 that identifies costs in primary categories for your project. This does not need to be precise; it is to assure the jury that your proposal is feasible. Be sure to include costs for upkeep and deinstallation as well as production and installation.
Phase 2: Voting by the Public
After selection of finalists by the jury, each finalist will receive a fee of $2,500 to prepare a final proposal for public voting. The proposal should include:
MCC staff will review the budget, schematics, and timeline for feasibility before the project is presented to the public. If this cannot be resolved satisfactorily before the public launch date, the project will not be included in the final public presentations, although the full design fee will be paid. The budget and timeline will not be part of the public discussion.
There will be a public forum during the public voting process at which all finalists will be required to participate. The form of this public forum has not been finalized at this point.
Further information about what the finalists need to present will be provided at the time of their notification.
All dates are subject to change. Check back on the website for the latest information.
