Playable 2010, a brand-new international design competition, invites designers of all types from around the world to design playground equipment and spaces that will "give a sense of place, wonder and fun so strong that they will entice children outdoors to play."
As its first phase, which launches today, the REAL playground experts - kids - provide their input. Kids are asked to draw what fun means to them, or their most favorite, fun place in the world. These pictures will be shared with the various competing professional designers, so they have a clear picture of what kids think is fun!
More details and entry information can be found on the Playable Kids website, starting sometime today.
The competition is presented by the Atlanta Task Force on Play (founded by KaBOOM! Playmaker Cynthia Gentry) and Georgia Tech in partnership with the City of Atlanta, Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs; Park Pride; and the Atlanta Beltline.
