Competition launched to find Best Playground in Australia
The Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) has launched a national competition, Australia’s Best Playground, to recognise well-designed public play spaces such as adventure playgrounds, cross fit circuits, senior fitness courses and water play.
The competition is open to AILA members with finished play space projects, including registered landscape architects, registered landscape architect applicants and graduate members.
The national winner will receive a trip to the home of Finnish playground manufacturer Lappset in Finland, with a winner from each of AILA’s three regions (Victoria/Tasmania, NSW/ACT and Queensland/South Australia/Northern Territory) will also receive a free ticket to the 2016 International Festival of Landscape Architecture in Canberra from 27th to 30th October.
The winner will be selected by both a popular vote and an expert jury. The jury consists of AILA national president Daniel Bennett, AILA board member James Grant, Outlines Landscape Architecture director Gary Ford and RMIT lecturer Dr Barbara Chancellor.
Entries close on Tuesday 15th March 2016 with the winning project to be announced on 24th May.
