        Slant Open International Landscape Design Competition 2015
                           “Testing The Water”
                                


Question
Will the projects be actually built somewhere?

Answer
No.... As with all of our competitions the projects are imaginary and exist as virtual concepts.


Question
Do I have to use a real plot in a real location as the basis for my design?

Answer
No, you do not have to use a real plot, but if you have one in mind, and it fits the brief, then you can use it.

We believe that one of the main advantages, indeed strengths of the SLANT concept is that you can place your imagined plot anywhere in the world and in so doing you are always designing in a geographical, topographical, climatic and cultural environment of your own choosing.

Contestants are also not limited in any way by budget, however designs must be 'reasonably practical’, and as always they should not be harmful to the environment.



Question
Do I have to send in my Entry Form early?

Answer
It does helps us with administration if we receive Entry Forms at an early stage, however you are under no obligation to send it in early and it will be ok if you choose to send it with your design submission in May.


Question
I am planning to submit hand drawn posters; will this place me at a disadvantage?

Answer
No......What we are looking for by way of presentation is just how well the designers display and communicate their ideas. It makes judging so much easier if the drawings are clear and the information readily accessible, and all of this can be achieved with a hand drawn presentation.
