Algae are nature's first life form and can create a future of abundance through affordable and locally produced food and energy.

Thirty times more productive than conventional crops, algae can use cheap and abundant resources that will not run out. Algae will provide sustainable food and ecological living.


The 2011 International Algae Competition is a global challenge to design visionary algae food and energy systems: algae landscape designs, algae production systems and new algae foods.

The Competition is open to everyone, anywhere in the world: algae enthusiasts, entrepreneurs, architects, builders, designers, scientists, growers, food developers, cooks, students and teams.  Registration is online at, the official website with all details and guidelines.

Registration opens January 11 through September 11. Submission deadline is October 11, 2011. Finalists will be announced February 12, 2012. Entries will be judged by distinguished panels of international jurors. The Algae Competition has three tracks.

Track 1: Algae Landscape Design

Design integrated APS into future landscapes, farms, coastlines, cities, infrastructure, buildings and eco-communities.
Track 2: Algae Production Systems (APS)
Systems100 What are the best designs, engineering and systems for algae production to work effectively and economically on a community scale or distributed model?
Develop working models and designs for APS and microfarms.

Track 3: Algae Food Development
Food100 What will be the next algae foods and recipes and the future uses of algae as a food and feed ingredient that will transform our health?
