Trieste Contemporanea International Design Contest 2016 now is over!
CALL FOR ENTRIES: The Trieste Contemporanea Committee has recently announced the 12th edition of the International design competition Trieste Contemporanea for 2016 themed ’Waterline’ with the aim of showcasing the most original design offerings from the countries of Central Eastern Europe.
Design competition promoted by the Trieste Contemporanea Committee and supported by the Regione Autonoma Friuli Venezia Giulia and the Central European Initiative(CEI) from twenty-four Central Eastern European countries ivites to submit a project of an original item of contemporary design.
Contestants of this competition are asked to make reference to an element/elements of life and work on water which is/are an original and distinctive feature of a place in one of the countries within the purview of the competition, possibly studying a local know-how or exceptional/excellent tradition of that place, and then, using this object of interest as inspiration, to conceive an original item of contemporary design which caters to the latest needs present in the sector.
The Trieste Award theme, on the other hand, asks contestants for original object concepts for use in the nautical sector which take inspiration from either a proverb or popular local saying tied to marine practice or to the more general relation of man with the sea.
Each contestant can enter only a single project, unless entering one for the general theme of the competition and a separate one for the Trieste Award’s dedicated theme.
The awards ceremony will take place in Trieste at the opening of final exhibition, to which the winning designers will be invited at the organizing Committee’s expense.
