Established in 2007, the Public Art Awards recognizes local public arts projects that are creative, environmentally compatible and involved with public participation.
The awards, conferred for the third year in 2012, include Outstanding Award, Best Planning Award, Best Creativity Award, Best Environmental Integration Award, Best Public Participation Award, Best Education Promotion Award, and Popularity Award.
The contesting projects for the first seven categories all go through three stages of judging by a committee, while the popularity award winner, which must first enter the second phase, is selected among candidates by an online voting.
Public art works on display in various public spaces such as the metro stations, hospitals, schools and street corners are all potential contestants. Most winners have stood out because of their creative integration with local culture or unique artistry.
