The RIBA Competitions Office is pleased to announce the launch of a new International Open Ideas Competition on behalf of Newport City Council and Newport Unlimited, working in partnership with the Welsh Development Agency and the Design Commission for Wales.

Submissions are invited from architects, landscape architects, engineers, town planners and urban designers for a new public space and its surrounding urban form in the Market Square area of Newport, South Wales.

The competition will take the format of an anonymous Open Ideas Competition. A jury panel will short-list up to six schemes, which will be subject to anonymous exhibition at the Landscape Institute's annual conference (Cardiff, 15-16 March 2006). Members of the public will also be given the opportunity to see and comment on the anonymous design proposals prior to the final assessment.

The jury panel will select a first, second and third placed scheme, with these teams receiving prize money of £2,500, £1,500 and £750 respectively.

Registration deadline: Thursday 23 February 2006
Submission deadline: 2pm on Thursday 2 March 2006
