Council launches ‘Designer Dunny’ public art competition
Waipā residents are encouraged to let their imaginations run wild designing the exterior of a new public toilet facility in Te Awamutu.
The Designer Dunny competition, run by Waipā District Council, invites local artists to submit their original designs in any 2D medium, such as drawings, paintings, photos or digital illustrations.
The winner will receive a $500 Prezzy card, with their design printed on a graphic wrap and applied to the exterior walls of the new toilet block at Centennial Park on Rewi Street.
Council’s community services manager Sally Sheedy says local artists of all skill levels and ages are invited to submit an entry that showcases the theme of movement.
“Centennial Park is a place for recreation, exercise and play, so we would love to see that reflected in the entries.”
“This competition is a wonderful opportunity for our Waipā residents to show off their artistic side and design an artwork that the whole community will be able to enjoy.”
Interested residents are encouraged to view the new toilet block at Centennial Park to visualise their aspiring artwork in the space.
Competition guidelines and an entry template can be found at www.waipadc.govt.nz/designerdunny.
Designs can be submitted by email to email@example.com or dropped off at Council offices or libraries in Te Awamutu or Cambridge.
The Designer Dunny competition is open to people of all ages who have lived in or currently reside in Waipā. Entries close at 5pm, Monday 5 October 2020.
