AILDM's 2020 design competition for students and recent graduates will open soon. All landscape design students in Australia who are currently enrolled in, or have graduated in the past 12 months from, a design course that leads to a Diploma, Advance
Diploma, Design Certificate IV or a Degree in Landscape Design will be eligible to enter. It is an avenue to be recognised for the knowledge they have developed and their ability to design gardens and landscapes.
Entrants will be provided with a brief for a residential garden design and the base plan. The competition seeks to give students and graduates a 'real life' design scenario typical of what they are likely to encounter in the profession of landscape design.
They are encouraged to design imaginatively and creatively, while being mindful of the practical considerations of site constraints and opportunities, the client brief, and environmental issues.
