APRIL 11, 2014

As Memorial Day Weekend approaches, Mysteryland is excited to announce its first ever Sustainable Design Challenge. Producers of Mysteryland and MATTE creative agency are calling upon the creative young minds of the American design community to take on the challenge utilizing their talents and expertise in order to create a sustainable, functional installation based on the theme and Mysteryland motto, “Today is a Gift.”
Mysteryland is driven by a strong ethos: the Festival Footprint. The festival is organized to be sustainable and nature-friendly. Additionally, Mysteryland believes in community-building, whether it is among festival-goers, artists, musicians and even those who help organize and helped Mysteryland become the world’s longest running music festival.
The winning design will be built and placed on the festival grounds in Bethel Woods, New York, the original location of the legendary Woodstock Music & Arts Festival. Contestants have a chance to conceptualize, design, and participate in the building of an installation that represents their unique vision, and the Grand Prize winner will have his or her work seen by nearly 25,000 attendees. As an acknowledgement of participation all those who have completed submissions will receive a 20% discount code for Mysteryland USA tickets.
Deadline for submission is 11:59PM EDT, April 25, 2014. For entry information and competition guidelines please click here.
