All the proposals were evaluated by a review panel to make sure they are achievable and appropriate.
The top six designs as selected by our review panel were available for the public to vote on. Over 2,000 people had their say on which three they would like to see in Cathedral Square.
Delivery – 13 November to 11 December
The winning applicants have just over four weeks and $8000 to build and install their designs with the support of key industry partners.
