Last December, the city of New York announced a challenge for people to reinvent the old payphone . Now they’ve announced the six finalists of the Reinvent Payphones challenge, offering us a look at what the competing designers have been cooking up. These finalists will be a part of a public voting, with the winner earning the Popular Choice Award later this month. However, each of the finalists listed are also winners in their own categories.
I’ve also placed links for each finalist’s NYC Digital description page, so just click on their names if you’d like to learn more about them!
NYC/IO  – Best in Community Impact
NYC Beacon  – Best Visual Design
Windchimes  – Tied with NYC/IO as Best in Community Impact
NYC Loop  – Best in Creativity
NYFi  – Best in Connectivity
Smart Sidewalks  – Best Functionality
