Braun launched the 17th edition of the BraunPrize. This internationally recognised design competition is open to young industrial designers who are still studying or who have graduated within the last two years.
International Competition to Promote Young Designers
When it was established in 1968, the Braun- Prize was Germany’s first international competition to promote the work of young designers. Braun’s commitment to this cause has been highly regarded by the design world and the design-aware public ever since. In sponsoring the BraunPrize, Braun seeks to highlight the importance of industrial design and innovative products and to promote ideas for consumer items which help people in all aspects of their daily lives.
The Objective of the BraunPrize
The BraunPrize seeks to promote the work of young designers from all over the world, to recognize the work of design schools and to help develop a greater appreciation of the factors and criteria which make for good product design.
Call for Entries
Participants are free to choose any subject for their product concepts. The BraunPrize has always been entirely independent of the Braun product range and is not restricted to products from the consumer goods sector.
The product concepts submitted should represent real innovations in design and technology, focusing on the essential topics of our time. The conceptual designs should be developed with users’ needs in mind showing applications which support them in their everyday lives – in the home, at work or school, during sports and leisure activities or in the context of health and personal care.
