YOU are invited
You are invited to submit design entries for the 2021 Aesthetic Competition Series. The purpose of this competition is to promote aesthetic consideration as an element of responsible design for functional power delivery structures in a simple and publicly accessible format.
Individuals or teams consisting of professionals, students and general public are encouraged to participate. Transmission Structure design parameters have been provided for a realistic set of load conditions and include minimum clearances, as typically specified in North America.
Judging Criteria and Prizes
The judging criteria will recognize structure designs with geometric configurations that fulfill electrical safety and operating requirements as well as excellence in economic, and aesthetic considerations. An independent panel will judge entries according to the following goals:
- The winning design(s) will be practical, buildable, efficient, and economic.
- Designs must meet given realistic loading criteria with all the usual transmission line constraints and limits.
- The winning design(s) are to be simple yet realistic.
Detailed Judging Criteria for Series 2 will be provided at a later date.
