Community groups and projects led by charities are being urged to come up with ways to improve public spaces as part of a competition with an £11,000 prize-fund.
A cash incentive is being offered for community organisations and charities to play a bigger role in the development of local public spaces.
Projects should demonstrate how good design can create opportunities for improved health, local regeneration, skills development, community enterprise or social interaction.
Three runners-up will receive £2,500 and the overall winner receiving £3,500 to make their vision a reality.
Martyn Evans, chief executive of the Carnegie UK Trust, said: “This challenge is about improving the lives of people across Scotland and we hope the funding helps stimulate ideas, creativity and above all encourages communities to come together to think of ways they can improve their surroundings.”
The prize has been launched in partnership with the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland.
The closing date is 17 March.
