The Downtown Frederick Partnership’s placemaking competition, Pitchcraft, is set for the second consecutive year. The competition invites creative people to pitch an idea that can be physically implemented downtown that will re-imagine and reinvent public spaces that will better connect people and places in the community, according for the partnership.
Pitches must be received by Aug. 25. A panel of judges review all submissions and narrow them down to four candidates, who will pitch their ideas in front of a live audience on Thursday, Oct. 24, at New Spire Stages at 15 W. Patrick St.
Audience members will vote on their favorite pitch, and the winner will be announced that evening. Ticket sales will go directly toward funding the winning idea. The winner will also receive guidance from the Downtown Frederick Partnership and volunteer advisers to help implement their idea.
