Michelin North America is proud to announce the 2020 edition of its annual Michelin Challenge Design competition — to celebrate, promote, publicize and give visibility to original creative thinking and innovation in mobility design.
By embracing and supporting design, Michelin aims to establish a closer relationship with the design community, combining technical innovation with transportation design to create vehicles or systems that consumers want to use, buy and enjoy.
Three winners will be invited as guests of Michelin to the Movin’On Summit, a premier global summit on sustainable mobility. The 2020 Summit will be held in Montreal, 3–5 June, 2020. At Movin’On, the winning works are displayed, and the winners are recognized at a special Michelin Challenge Design reception and participate in a review of their design portfolios by members of the jury and leading international designers or experts.
Michelin challenges the international design and mobility community, individuals, teams, small and large companies and universities to enthusiastically create innovative and aesthetically pleasing design solutions that will meet the theme requirements of the Michelin Challenge Design.
The theme for 2020 is: Upcycle. Michelin invites you to participate by upcycling a previously honored Michelin Challenge Design entry.
Your design story should visually communicate how your second-life use will provide a greater value than the original design.
Anyone interested in future mobility is eligible to enter. Entries come from all over the world and include individuals and teams of transportation and mobility designers, including OEMs and suppliers, studios, design schools, students, teachers, artists, architects, engineers and futurists.
The Michelin Challenge Design competition is held annually since 2002. So far, Michelin has received more than 14,000 entries from 134 countries.
