The BraunPrize 2018, Student Product Design Competitions challenges creative minds to envision design concepts that matter. Our world is becoming increasingly complex – our focus should be on what is essential, on creating truly better solutions and experiences. By taking on global problems or simply improving the quality of individual lives, they want to encourage innovation that can be virtual or physical, scientific or technical, or that changes our behavior for the better.
This competition will award exceptional ideas and product design concepts – 2 or 3 dimensional, including interactive – that offer progress and improvement, that are significant, substantial, and meaningful: design for what matters.
Entries will be separated into two categories and judged individually:
• Student: product concepts from students who are still studying or (for recent graduates) which were created during the time of study
• Young Talent: product concepts from young designers who have graduated within the last 5 years
Entries must be product design and/or product interaction concepts that are not yet on the market or in production. Individual or team participation are accepted and there is no limit on group size.
Software, interaction or media design will be considered as an integral part of an overall product concept (hardware and software).
There is no entry fee for this competition.
It's free to enter!
This competition is open worldwide to design schools, students and young talents that are 18 years of age or older.
The total prize money for both categories is 75,000 USD. In addition to the cash prizes, all award winners will receive a trophy and a certificate. The best entries will also be presented in the BraunPrize exhibition and made public in the international press and online.
To celebrate two anniversaries of the BraunPrize in 2018 – the twentieth award and fifty years of the competition – Braun will offer, in addition to the cash prizes, entrants in the Students category the chance of an internship at the Braun Design department.
