Is it possible to apply to Winter Stations as a team?
Yes, you can apply as a team or individual. If you’re applying as a team, you only need to register one team member and if you have a collective name, put that in the ‘Organization’ part of the file name structure. All team members will be properly credited when the winning teams are announced.
Can I submit more than one proposal?
Yes, you can submit more than one.
Does the design have to include a lifeguard stand?
Yes, every design must include and/or interact with the existing lifeguard stand in some way but must not be structurally dependent upon it. The intention for 2022 is to display once again display the installations on the beach, but we may have to revert to an alternative setting depending on how the pandemic evolves.
Does the proposal have to be submitted in a specific language?
Yes, please submit your proposal in English. The jury selection will be primarily based on your design and supporting visuals.
Can we temporarily remove the structure for the installation?
No, the intent of the design brief is to incorporate the lifeguard stands as part of the overall design.
Can every country participate in this competition?
Yes, this competition is open to everyone.
Is there a specific file name required for the submission?
Yes, please save your files with the name of the installation. For example BellyOfTheBear.

Is there a cash prize?
There will be an honorarium of $2,000 CAD for each winning artist/team (typically processed through an etransfer).
Is the deadline for submissions before midnight on November 25th? Or just before, November 24th 11:59pm EST?
The deadline for Winter Stations is November 25th at 11:59pm EST.
How important is the integration of the lifeguard stand in regard to judging criteria?
All designs must interact with or acknowledge the lifeguard stand, however, should not be structurally dependent upon it.
How much detail regarding construction does the proposal need to provide?
The proposal should consider the construction budget and general feasibility of the design. Our fabrication team will connect with winning design teams directly to go over the construction in more detail following the competition. Given the current global situation, materials and labour have experienced high rates of inflation, therefore designers will be asked to work with our fabrication team to value-engineer where needed to achieve the intended design.
