FutureTown Design Competition 2019What changes would you like to see in your town or city neighbourhood? How could your local place be adapted or transformed for the benefit of this and future generations? Share your vision in this innovative national competition!


Organised by national towns agency Scotland’s Towns Partnership in partnership with Threesixty Architecture, the FutureTown Design Competition is aimed at stimulating conversations, provoking ideas and encouraging new approaches to highlight what our towns could look like now and in the future.


Now in its fifth year, the FTDC showcases a rich variety of innovative yet practical ideas promoting positive change in areas such as the local environment, the public realm and accessibility, low carbon and sustainable living, digital technologies, tourism, arts and culture, history and heritage, health and well-being, and much more.

The winning entry, decided by a public vote, is showcased at our annual Towns Tea Party event, with the entrants invited to present their idea to an audience of policy-makers and those from across sectors involved in supporting towns.


How to Enter and Key Dates

The deadline for entries is 5pm on Thursday 31 October 2019. Scotland's Towns Partnership will shortlist entries, and then the winner will be decided by a public vote held during Scotland's Towns Week, 18 – 24 November 2019.


There is no application form for this competition. However, entries should include a visual representation(s) of the town or idea (photograph, sketch, graphic design, or illustrative image etc), as well as a short written description. Please note, that applications should be no more than two A4 pages, or one A3 page.
