We are sorry, but this contest has finished!
COMPETITION NOW CLOSED!
To everyone who submitted an entry: thank you for your creativity and for making us laugh.
To the voters: thank you for taking a stand and being part of this democratic process.
The majority have spoken, and one lucky winner will now walk away with $888 in cold, hard cash.
To uphold the values of democracy and transparency that this competition was founded on,
we will be in touch with the winner and an announcement will be made via our Facebook and Instagram.
Also, keep a look out for an exclusive #APublicSquare interview with The Chosen One.
With that, we end our Parky McParkface Naming Competition with an everlasting reminder:
“There’s no such thing as a vote that doesn’t matter.”
Boaty McBoatface was the winning suggestion in a disastrous naming poll for a presumably important boat. From Marina Bay to Budget Terminal, botched renaming and rebranding initiatives are something of a tradition in Singapore. Has the public proved itself untrustworthy?
The Substation humbly places its faith in the public by offering the chance to name what does not belong to us—the newly pedestrianised space in front of the building, formerly known as Armenian Street.
Whether real or imagined, this space (and competition) are the starting points of a year-long look at public space and the issues surrounding it.
So make your mark on our critical discourse by joining a poll to name “our” square!
