Benchmark 2020 NOW OPEN!
Now in its fourth year, Benchmark is once again hosting an international design competition to bring unique site furnishings to our neighbourhoods and celebrate Manitoba’s diverse trail network. Our trails offer a multitude of trail experiences from wilderness pathways, rail trails, rural tracks, forested paths, historic canoe routes to logging roads, country roads, secondary highways, paved urban walkways, and downtown streets.

Submission deadline February 20, 2020 at 11:59 CST
Congratulations to the winners of Benchmark 2019!
Storefront Manitoba and The Winnipeg Trails Association ask designers to put their skills to work and challenge the concept of a ‘common’ bench. This design competition looks for intervention that has the power to stop people in their tracks and provide a place to wait, rest, read and more.
The Winnipeg Trails Association and Storefront Manitoba invite design teams to submit proposals for a permanent bench to be located along the Trans Canada Trail.
