Space For Ideas Competition - Extended Deadline: 18th September

This is a competition for people with ideas.

Appear Here's Space for Ideas Competition is looking for visionary designers, talented creatives, and ambitious entrepreneurs to apply to win one of 3 flagship stores in London, Paris or New York.  The competition is based on the belief that when the right idea hits the right space, at the right time, great things can happen.
When you think that brands like Paul Smith and Virgin have built global empires off the back of one shop, it's exciting to imagine what you can achieve by launching a store in one of the world's best cities.

How it works

Enter through the Space for Ideas website and pitch us your best idea. The competition closes on September 15th and the three lucky winners will open their stores to the public on October 18th - November 1st.
