Braun celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2021 and is pleased to announce the 21st Braun Prize International Design Competition, with a virtual awards ceremony due to take place in October 2021.
Great designs, visionary ideas and clever solutions from all over the world are eligible for submission.
This year, young, up-and-coming designers and inventors are tasked with exploring good design to address and solve the challenges of today and tomorrow; and Braun’s commitment to nurturing young talent will see this year’s total prize value increase to $100,000 USD.
Entries must be product design and/or product interaction concepts that are not yet on the market or in production.
The focus of the BraunPrize is on product design. Software, inter-action or media design will be considered as an integral part of an overall product concept (hardware and software)
- The product concepts submitted should represent innovations in design, technology and user experiences.
- The conceptual designs should be developed with user needs in mind.
- Concepts can address global problems or find simple, ingenious solutions for daily routines.
- Participants are free to choose any subject for their product concept as long as the ideas are significant, substantial, meaningful and connect to the theme: Shape tomorrow.
Established in 1968, the Braun Prize was Germany’s first international competition with the aim to promote the work of young designers. Braun’s continuous commitment to this cause has been highly regarded by the design world and the design-aware public ever since.
