Dear friends, BE OPEN is launching its next global Internet open call together with the Mayor’s Fund for London. The open call named #BEOPENDesignCity is inspired by the City Pitch Leadership Programme held in 2017 and 2018 by the Mayor’s Fund for London in cooperation with BE OPEN.
We invite you to share visual pieces depicting what you love about your city, what you would like to preserve or add, as well as any other ideas of what could be improved in their everyday urban lives.
By this open call BE OPEN and MFL encourage everyone to look around their cities through their own lens, capture those moments that make you in love with your city, or suggest ideas that will make it even better, and share the relevant visuals via Instagram or Facebook with the #BEOPENDesignCity or #BEOPENCityPitch hashtags.
The contest is open for submissions from November 20 until January 31, 2018. The winner will be selected by the members of BE OPEN and MFL from a shortlist of submissions with the highest ratings of likes by Instagram and Facebook users. The winner will receive EUR 300.
City Pitch Leadership Programme empowers young Londoners to step up as leaders and make a difference in their community. The experience provides 8-16-year-olds with the opportunity to plan and launch a social action project, whilst helping them to develop their leadership, project management and communication skills.
The Mayor’s Fund for London is a social mobility charity that empowers young Londoners from disadvantaged backgrounds to acquire the skills and opportunities they need to secure employment, climb the career ladder and escape the threat of poverty.
BE OPEN is a global initiative to foster creativity and innovation through a system of conferences, competitions, exhibitions, master classes and cultural events.
