London Remade is flouting best practice guidelines in its hunt for a designer to create a trophy for the Mayor of London’s Green Procurement Code Awards 2008.
A free pitch is under way to create the design, which will be applied to five trophies. Entries close at the end of June.
Entry conditions state the trophy design should incorporate recycled or reusable materials, and applications are open to designers within any discipline.
The winner of the competition will be able to display a variety of work in a dedicated display site at the awards ceremony on 10 November at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, but will not receive a fee and will only be eligible for £1000 worth of production costs.
Submissions must include a 400-word description of the proposed design and indicate the percentage of recycled materials used, alongside a drawing of the trophy.
Five shortlisted entrants will be called for interview, says a spokeswoman, after which the winning designs’ awards will be delivered by 13 October.
The trophy will be presented to winners in London-based organisations in recognition of their achievements in five categories including people, policy, strategy and communication, procurement process engaging suppliers and measurement and results.
