Search for Commonwealth showcase

A producer is being sought to create a "breathtaking vision" of Glasgow and Scotland at the closing ceremony of the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi.

Organisers of the 2014 games in Glasgow hope to showcase the country when the city formally receives the Commonwealth Games flag from India.

Glasgow 2014 Ltd is inviting tenders from "individuals, companies and consortia" to produce the show.

The Commonwealth flag will be handed over to Glasgow on 14 October 2010.

John Scott, chief executive of Glasgow 2014, said: "This is a unique opportunity for the very best in the creative industries to help to promote Glasgow and Scotland to the Commonwealth and world.

'Best talent'

"We're proud of Glasgow's strengths and its rich cultural, industrial and sporting legacy - and now is the time to celebrate and showcase the city's transformation into a modern, vibrant and stylish destination.

"At the handover ceremony in Delhi, the world will turn its attention to Glasgow and Scotland - and we want to ensure that the very best talent is at the forefront of promoting city, nation and the games.

"It is through their vision and direction that we will set the tone for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014."

Tenders are being invited from interested parties "from creative, cultural, arts, production, programming, advertising and events backgrounds".
