About

Playable City Award

Creatives from around the world are invited to propose distinctive ideas that put people and play at the heart of the Future City. All over the world governments and tech companies are investing in smart systems for cities, using communication networks and sensors to join up services, collect data and make efficiencies.

The Playable City Award asks us to imagine how we might use these same technologies to make our cities more liveable, hopeful and collaborative. Applications open once a year, and the winning proposal is installed in Bristol, UK for the public to play. 

To find out about our previous winners please visit the Playable City website.

Who should apply?
