Come and discover Eleven Magazine's competition 'Plastic Worlds’ and help clean up our water ways and oceans. With a month left to register, there is still plenty of time to participate and submit your idea.
In this competition, you are asked to think of ways to fight the plastic problem in our waters: from rivers to oceans. The challenge is designed with two keywords in mind, each with a specific objective and site typology linked to it. The first is ‘prevention’, which is linked to rivers and focuses on halting the plastic flow. The second, is the concept of ‘action’, which is linked to the oceans and asks to engage with the cleaning up of the existing pollution. Between these two themes, there are infinite degrees of cross- pollination, which you are also free to explore in your designs. For those who are interested in a more comprehensive strategy, there is also the possibility of dealing with the whole plastic pollution route: from river to ocean.
Ultimately, it is up to you individually to define what the scope of the challenge is and what the outcome of this competition will be. Is it a structure, a series of structures, a product, a vehicle, an idea, a new place, a strategy or a combination of things? You decide. 'Plastic Worlds’ is open to all creatives – both professionals and/or students. Participants can compete individually or in a team of up to four people. Each team is asked to register and submit their proposals online by the 11th of January 2019 with awarded entries officially announced online on the 11th of March 2019.
