In London, “The Illuminated River International Design Competition” was launched earlier this month in an effort to “transform London’s relationship with the Thames after dark.” The Illuminated River Foundation and the Mayor of London are conducting a global search for an outstanding team of artists, designers, engineers, architects, technologists and other specialists to create inspirational light art on London’s bridges to reinvigorate the River Thames at the heart of the capital.

The competition focuses on central London’s celebrated bridges between Albert and Tower. Creative teams asked to submit details of proposed team and experience at the competition’s first stage. The five or more finalists who reach the second stage will create concept designs for four bridges–Westminster, Waterloo, London and Chelsea–along with a design masterplan for all the bridges.

Competition deadline 14:00 BST July 7, 2016. For more information, go to https://competitions.malcolmreading.co.uk/illuminatedriver/
