City in a Garden: The Sustainable Chicago Poster Design Competition

We are excited to announce a new Moving Design initiative — a poster design contest called City in a Garden. Imagined in collaboration with the City of Chicago's Chief Sustainability Officer Karen Weingart, the contest offers an opportunity to win up to $1,000 and be displayed on bus shelters around town.

Submission deadline is April 4, so enter today! Learn more at

Mayor Emanuel's office announced the initiative in a recent press release:

To expand awareness of Mayor Emanuel's Sustainable Chicago 2015 action agenda, grant money will be awarded to the top submissions for a new poster design contest, City in a Garden. Winning posters will be displayed on bus shelters throughout the city, serving as public art, enhancing daily life in Chicago, and encouraging residents to live more sustainably. 

Poster judges include our own Rick Valicenti, Art Institute Curator Zoë Ryan, IDEO's Sara Frisk, Chicago's Chief Sustainability Officer Karen Weingart, Studio V Design's Pooja Vukosavich and SOM Urban Design's Philip Enquist.
