Future of Money Design Award 2017

About competition

Running since 2009 and created to develop links between the financial industry and creative practitioners from around the world, this year the video contest Future of Money Design Award invites artists and designers to imagine a counterfactual scenario from the history of money that reimagines how money could have developed if things had gone differently.

This year the video contest Future of Money Design Award (FOM) invites artists and designers to imagine a counterfactual scenario from the history of money that reimagines how money could have developed if things had gone differently.

Arguably there has been no greater time of financial uncertainty than today and no greater need for fresh ideas and imaginative insights which help inform, suggest and question our current technological, social and cultural direction.

What if Aristotle had died before writing his observations of the ancient Greek currency system, would Plato's money free utopias have become more influential? How might electronic payments evolved, if western union had not successfully created a monopoly surrounding the telegraph? Or in the context of tracked electronic payments, would it have been better if the cash like digital wallets from the 90's like Mondex or Visa cash, became the standard? Or what if the financial crash of 2008 never happened, what would have become of Bitcoin and the blockchain?
