The Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA) has launched the Design Your Airport competition that invites the public to share their ideas and come up with creative yet practical facilities for the future airport.
Participants may choose from the following design themes: Highlighting Hong Kong’s local culture; enhancing the travel experience; or relating to the aviation industry.
Entries are due by May 20, 2016, and a judging panel comprising representatives from AA and professionals from the architectural and engineering fields will select the winners based on each entry’s relevance to the chosen theme, creativity, feasibility, aesthetics and sustainability.
The competition features two categories: The Secondary Student Group and the Open Group. All Hong Kong secondary school students may enter the Secondary Student Group as individuals, or as part of a team comprising no more than four students.
Teams may comprise students from different secondary schools and there is no limit to the number of teams entering the competition from each secondary school. Any Hong Kong resident may enter the Open Group as an individual or as part of a team comprising no more than four people.
The Grand Prize Winner of the Secondary Student Group will receive a cash prize of HK$10,000 (US$1, 289) and two round-trip economy class air tickets to Asia destinations. The Grand Prize Winner of the Open Group will receive a cash prize of HK$50,000 (US$6,446) and two round-trip business class air tickets to Asia destinations.
