Seven projects selected for 2015 shortlist


Watershed announces the shortlist for the third international Playable City Award, which launched earlier this year, inviting artists, designers, architects, technologists and creative practitioners from all over the world to propose new and distinctive ideas that put people and play at the heart of the City.

In addition to the prize, the winner will become part of the vibrant community of creatives at Watershed’s Pervasive Media Studio, offering generous access to facilities, support and opportunities for collaboration.

The winner will be announced on Tuesday 9 June 2015 with the successful artwork unveiled in Bristol in September. This year the winner will also be given the opportunity to travel to Japan in the autumn to share their project as part of Watershed and British Council’s new Playable City Tokyo programme.

From 197 entries from 60 countries around the world, the seven shortlisted projects are being shared online for you to ask questions of the creators and share your comments with the Award judging panel.
