There are two categories of applicant to this competition:
1. Rising Stars
Entrants should be individual urban designers, town planners, architects, landscape designers or soon to be qualified professionals.
They may, but not necessarily need to be already working within a professional built environment consultancy. But it is always the individual, and not the company or partnership that we wish to apply.
The minimum qualification is an undergraduate degree in a related discipline recognised by the relevant UK professional body.
Citizens from outside the UK are equally welcome to apply, as long as their degree would be recognised in the UK by the relevant professional body.
Note: Please note, futureWimbledon, as part of the local authority, London Borough of Merton, is restricted by legislation in the way it appoints consultants. Applicants under this category should satisfy themselves that they would be eligible to be appointed as a consultant design champion, and would have the correct qualifications and approvals to work in the UK.
2. Creative Communities
Wimbledon has an extraordinary pool of local talent. Within this group we wish to encourage any individual or group who feel they have something to say about Wimbledon Town Centre, to apply.
There is no requirement for professional qualifications. We welcome entries from artists, creative, poets and thinkers wherever they may be. You may enter as individuals or as part of a community or business group. Applicants may be from anywhere in the world.
