2022 is our 30th Anniversary!


The Canstruction® New York 2022 Call for Entries is now open! We've extended the deadline to September 6th. Scroll down below the Entry form for information about the entry fee and the instructions for where to send the entry fee. Any questions should be directed to email@canstructionny.org

We have had to substantially increase the entry fee to cover the increased cost of pick up from teams and delivery of the cans to Brookfield Place, which Canstruction New York coordinates and pays for, along with event insurance. For the last several years, we have struggled to cover our costs and last year we were in the red, so we have had to adjust our fee to meet expected expenses.

Canstruction New York is an all volunteer organization. All money received from entry fees and donations goes to the production of the event.

Please send a check or money order in the amount of $1,200.00 payable to Canstruction New York Inc. to:
Canstruction New York, Inc.PO Box 2589,New York, NY 10108-2589

We require the receipt of entry fee checks by the Team Kickoff meeting on September 7th.  We can provide an address for messengering or dropping off checks. Email us for more information at email@canstructionny.org.

Canstruction® New York is a 501(c)(3) Corporation. is an international charity competition where architects, engineers, contractors and students they mentor, compete to design and build giant structures made entirely from full cans of food. At the close of the New York City competition all of the food from the cansculptures and food donations from the public will be donated to

New York City is joined by over 150 cities across North America and other countries such as Australia and New Zealand who will hold Canstruction® Competitions in the coming year. Highlighting the creativity and compassion of top architectural and engineering firms, these astounding structures are helping to change the world - by lifting the spirits of those in need, by raising public awareness, and most importantly, by collecting millions of pounds of food for local food banks.
