Design competitions have been used as an instrument to search for the best design solution for projects and as a procurement procedure. The benefits of design competitions are in fact manifold.  The outcome of competition brings added value beyond the objective of the project and the idea of investigation. A successfully conducted design competition can engage the public and professional community and the project can benefit from their trust. The three selected competitions have demonstrated how successfully conducted competitions can generate publicity, promote civic education, and elevate the business profile of the participated teams and promoters, in addition to the search of innovative ideas.
