The developers of the Greyhound site in Sydenham have incorporated in their plans a bespoke design and installation of a piece of public art to cover the north elevation wall of the refurbished Greyhound pub. This wall will form one side of a public walkway from Spring Hill to the public space around the pub.

A competition to design the public artwork is being organised by the Sydenham Arts Festival (Visual Arts Team) in association with the Sydenham Society. The design competition is open to anyone who lives or works or studies within 2km of the pub, in other words, local people, artists, designers, family and friends. This area includes all of Sydenham and most of Forest Hill, Penge & Crystal Palace.

The final date for registration to enter the competition is 22nd December 2010. The final date for entries to the competition is 9th January 2011. The winning design will be chosen by a judging panel by January 31 2011.

Individuals wishing to participate in the competition should register with the organising team either via email to greyhoundpubwalldesign@hotmail.co.uk or in writing to The Greyhound Pub Wall Design Competition, c/o The Kirkdale Bookshop, 272 Kirkdale, Sydenham SE26 4RS before 22nd December 2010, by giving the following information:
• Name
• local address (a residential, business or education address located within 2km of the pub)
• home address, if different from above
• telephone contact details
• email contact details, if available.

Entrants will be provided with a numbered entry pack and detailed instructions. A maximum of three entries will be permitted per entrant or group. Schools may submit up to ten entries. Participation as an individual does not disqualify you from also entering as part of a team or school entry.

There is no prize but the winner will have the honour of their design being enjoyed by the public for many years to come.

Registrations to enter the competition continue to flow in but there are still two weeks left before the registration closing date if it has slipped your mind. Just email your details by 22 December to receive your competition brief to greyhoundpubwalldesign@hotmail.co.uk

You don't need to be an artist to enter. The winning design might be completely "off the wall" Smile (sorry couldn't resist that). With this year’s Turner Prize being awarded to a "sound installation" by artist Susan Philipsz http://www.guardian.co.uk/artanddesign/2...intcmp=239 the Greyhound competition judging panel will have to keep their eyes Wow and ears Thumbsup open.

The final date for competition entries is 9 January. So you will have nearly three weeks during the Christmas and New Year's break to get those creative juices flowing. The sound of art - a “Great Escape" from "The Sound of Music"! Any other puns welcome.......
