I have put together an open international garden design competition and some of you may be interested in viewing the details on www.slant.eu
I am offering a first prize of €2,000 (approx $2,800) and the judges are John Brookes MBE FSGD, Anthony Paul FSGD and Hugh Ryan MIDI
The project is to design a garden for a specific private residence and closing date is 2 September 2011
Hopefully most of what you need to know is on the website www.slant.eu, but I welcome any questions which may arise.
To answer your specific question Melike, the competition can be entered either as an individual or in a team of 2,3 or 4 so you and your friend will be more than welcome.
There is a link on the homepage where you can register your interest and obtain a registration number.
