Design Exchange, in partnership with the Government of Ontario, announces its 7th annual accessibility competition.
This provincial, post-secondary design challenge seeks to explore design that is accessible to the greatest number of people, to the largest extent possible, regardless of age, ability, across all design disciplines.
CONCEPT : This year, students studying in all design disciplines are invited to submit proposals that develop creative solutions focussed on the accessible navigation of public spaces such as trails, beach access routes, parking, service counters, and fixed waiting areas, eating areas, play spaces, and paths of travel.
ELIGIBILITY : Participation is open to all currently enrolled students studying design (including, but not limited to: industrial, architecture, graphic, digital, interior, and landscape) at the undergraduate and graduate levels in Ontario in a college or university program.
PRIZE: The winning concepts will be awarded up to $2000 and be exhibited at the Design Exchange in 2019.
