BASF Design Competition 2016

BASF Design Competition is now calling for entries worldwide for its 2016 edition. This year there is a new direction: ” Design it. Love it. Live it. ”

The question to be answered is what role can design and innovation play to ensure that we are prepared and equipped for this social adaptation?

Submissions can range from consumer items ( furniture, footwear, apparel, etc ) to industrial products ( medical devices, construction equipment, etc ) or any object that can help societies realise their aspiration of healthier, smarter and sustainable living.

Applicants are encouraged to submit innovative designs and unique interpretations that are true to the essence of the theme. You will have to submit ideas using at least one BASF material featured in the material kit.

Submissions must be original work and not previously published or submitted to other competitions internationally. The ownership and copyright of all entry materials submitted remains with their respective entrants.

There is no entry fee . Eligibility Open to anyone worldwide. Prize The top 3 winners of the competition will receive:

• Grand Prize: A trip to visit designfabrik in Germany and a cash prize of RMB$20,000 ( approx. 3,050 USD )
