What is the difference between the Established Designer Category and the Aspiring Designer Category?
The Established Designer Category is open to practitioners with a strong design portfolio. You have your own practice, have worked in the industry for more than 3 years, or have received recognition from design awards. The Aspiring Designer Category is open to non-practitioners with a passion for creativity. You could be pursuing an education in design or any other related discipline; taking your first steps to a career in design; or simply design for pleasure.
How will I receive the notification of being a shortlist?
We will email the shortlisted designers to arrange for the submission of prototypes, if any, on 28 May 2021.
Will I be disqualified if no prototype is provided?
No. However, your prototype will further illustrate your ideas and enable the judges to understand your creation in greater depth.
Is there any allowance for providing prototypes?
No, there isn't. It will be at the discretion of the participant.
When do I expect the prototypes to be returned to me?
The organiser will retain the prototypes for 6 months for exhibition and publicity purposes. Details on returning the prototype will be emailed to you, closer to the end of the 6-month period.
