Young Planners Competition

Calling all Young Planners!


This is your chance to take to the stage at the industry's biggest annual conference.

We are looking for 5 Young Planners to deliver a speed presentation at this year's Planning Convention, looking at the new tools and technologies available to planners and how you hope to implement these into your work.

It's a great opportunity to have your voice heard and raise your professional profile. You'll also have the opportunity to attend the full day's conference and network with key industry figures. 


How to enter

Please send us a 40 second video of yourself giving a brief introduction to your chosen tech or tool. The tech or tool you choose is totally up to you, ideas includes: VR, Drones, Blockchain, 3D printing and AI. No fancy video production is needed, just you and your smart phone. Through this video we'd like to understand more about the tech or tool you're proposing to speak about and why it is exciting, as well as get a sense of you as a speaker.

Please send your videos to

Videos need to be submitted by midday, Monday 9 April. We will announce the winners via email and on our website by the end of April.
