Students must have undertaken the work between 2015 and 2017 at a higher education institution or college in the European Union. The subject of the work can be chosen freely. Submissions can be made in the categories of household, interiors, recreation, sport, electronic, office, industry, medical, vehicle, public design, fair, interface design, and design management.
The three winners will receive a prize package including, for example, thentrade fair participation at the Interzum from 16 to 19 May 2017 in Cologne (where on 16 May 2017 also the award ceremony will take place) and participation in a one-week workshop at the Domaine de Boisbuchet in France. The deadline for submissions is 18 March 2017.
