How can individuals escape competition

Germany - Land of Ideas International competition started: visionary designers of the future wanted

2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of the State Bauhaus as one of the most influential schools for design to this day. On this occasion, we award creative people from all over the world and invite them to present their vision for a better world. We are looking for pioneering design ideas and design concepts that are dedicated to a socially relevant topic and offer creative answers to pressing questions of our time:

How are our growing cities becoming healthier places to live? How can we ensure the quality of housing for people on low incomes? How can intelligent technologies make our everyday life and our work easier? How does environmentally friendly mobility succeed? How do we escape the flood of plastic waste?

The competition is open to designers and creatives from all over the world and invites participants from all design disciplines: from basic research and materials science to product design and fashion to architecture and urban development as well as future technologies and mobility. We are looking for prototypes that are still in the development stage or pioneering projects that have already been implemented.

The 20 best designers will be invited to Berlin in August 2019 to present their projects as part of 100 years of Bauhaus in an exclusive exhibition (travel and accommodation costs will be covered by the organizer).

Individuals, social entrepreneurs, companies, start-ups, universities, research institutions, as well as private initiators and initiatives can apply until March 31, 2019.

The competition is sponsored by the Federal Foreign Office, the Lotto Foundation Berlin and SAP SE.
