Public Design Contest
We received over 75 submissions to the contest and we exhibited all the entries in the Atrium at the Emily Carr Institute of Art and
Design March 18-29, 2005.
That exhibit began with an Open House where we
awarded prizes to the winners and noted submissions that received special
recognition or honourable mention from the judges. You can view all of these
plus submissions to the contest in the form of e-mail or other written
