The entry deadline is fast approaching for an international competition to design a Holocaust Memorial for the Atlantic City Boardwalk in New Jersey.

The final registration deadline is March 15, 2010. First-stage submissions are due on April 1, 2010. Jurors include architects Wendy Evans Joseph who helped design the U.S Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C.; former Pritzker Prize winner Richard Meier; and Daniel Liebeskind, who designed the master plan for the World Trade Center site.

The competition is being sponsored by the Atlantic City Boardwalk Holocaust Memorial Corporation, a nonprofit foundation chartered for the purpose of building the memorial, in conjunction with Atlantic City. The municipality has donated a prime building site on the ocean side of the boardwalk. Approximately 10 million people pass by the site each year.
