The designers of 3 winning entries will be granted with cash prize awards of € 3000 euro each.

The jury will also award the best free-style entry with a minor award of € 1000 euro, and there is the opportunity for finalist / winning designs to be developed into real products for the COLOMBO DESIGN design catalogue. In the event that COLOMBO DESIGN exercises the option to use the rights for production
on an exclusive basis and sine die (without time limitations), COLOMBO DESIGN undertakes to pay a royalty of annual sales to the designer. Designboom will also publish an exhaustive results report.


Projects should not be currently in production, previously published or exhibited projects - these will not be accepted. It is important that designs remain confidential until the results of the competition are published.

The jury will award designs and concepts which are innovative in terms of their formal aspects.

Do not send in vague concepts, but go a step further. It's not the idea which is the art, it's more the way somebody handles the idea that makes art.

Application registrations will be accepted through April 20th, 2011.


The jury will be announced soon.
