BOSTON, Nov. 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Calling all creators, bakers and sweets lovers!  Registration is now open for the Boston Society for Architecture’s (BSA) 12th Annual Gingerbread Design Competition and Exhibition! The BSA Gingerbread Design Competition is a fun and festive way to highlight great works of edible architecture while also raising funds for the BSA Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization.


This year’s design theme is “Transit: Boston on the Move” and invites participants to come up with their most innovative explorations of Boston’s many forms of transit including buses, bikes, trains, ferries, and even our transit infrastructure.


Registration is FREE and open to the public. Entrants can register as an individual, a family, a firm, a school and even a local business. Those interested in participating can register on the BSA website here. Registration will remain open until November 17 and all entries must be dropped off on December 5.

All entries will be displayed in the Atlantic Wharf Lobby at 290 Congress Street in Boston from December 7-21 and a reception is planned for the evening of December 14 to celebrate all the work. Prizes will be awarded on December 21 for Best Design (based on a jury of gingerbread experts) as well as a People’s Choice Award based on an online vote of the public that also acts as a fundraiser for the BSA Foundation.
