The closing date for the Dublin City Development Plan Schools Poster Competition has been extended to Friday, 30th April 2021 to facilitate schools returning to their classrooms this month.
The Lord Mayor of Dublin Hazel Chu has invited primary students from 3rd to 6th class to create a poster of their vision for the city as part of the public engagement process for the Dublin City Development Plan 2022- 2028. If schools would like their students to talk to the Lord Mayor about their posters, she would be delighted to chat to them online.
The Dublin City Development Plan sets out a vision and direction for the future of the city acting as an over-arching roadmap for the development of our city, protection of our environment, heritage, and amenities as well as in mitigating against climate change. The Plan is currently under review and a dedicated website in place to assist members of the public to be informed and to engage with the consultation process.
Students in the Senior Primary cycle (3rd- 6th class) are invited to enter the competition and prizes of book tokens will be awarded to the top 3 winning entries and to their schools. In addition the three overall winning posters will be included in the Dublin City Council Development Plan 2022-2028. A photomontage of the entries to the poster competition may be posted on the Development Plan website and a selection may be included in the draft Dublin City Development Plan 2022-2028, the final Plan and be used for promotional purposes related to the Plan.
Entries should be submitted by email to: DublinCityCouncilPosterComp@whpr.ie or by post to: Development Plan Team, Dublin City Council Poster Competition, Planning & Property Development Department, Block 4, Floor 3, Civic Offices, Wood Quay, Dublin 8. The closing date is 4pm on Friday, 30th April 2021.
