The 2018 BraunPrize For Emerging Designers

The BraunPrize 2018 challenges creative minds to envision design concepts that matter. Main focus should be on what is essential, on creating truly better solutions and experiences. The deadline is on March 20, 2018.

Awards will go to exceptional ideas and product design concepts – 2 or 3 dimensional, including interactive – that offer progress and improvement, that are significant, substantial, and meaningful: design for what matters.

The idea of the BraunPrize is today as relevant as it was before: to nurture and support young, up-and-coming designers and inventors that take on the challenge of making this world a better place with their creativity and craft.

The total prize money for both categories is $75,000 USD. Awards worth $15,000 USD, $10,000 USD, $5,000 USD will be given to the Gold, Silver, and Bronze Award winners. Additional prizes will be awarded to special mentions. Winners will get a chance to take an internship at the Braun Design department. All award winners will receive a trophy and a certificate. The best entries will also be presented in the BraunPrize exhibition and made public in the international press and online.

Main criteria

  • The contest is open to citizens of any country;
  • Entrant must be 18 years of age or older;
  • Entries must be product design and/or product interaction concepts that are not yet on the market or in production.
