The Ro Plastic Prize has opened applications for the 2022 edition, with the intention to involve creatives all over the world for a responsible re-cycle, re-use, up-cycle of Waste (not only plastic).
This prize is part of the RoGUILTLESSPLASTIC project — created to sensitize the global creative community to a design that, respecting the criteria of sustainability, responsibility and emotionality — is based on recycling, reuse and upcycle of waste materials, not only Plastic.
10.000 Euro will be awarded to each competition category winner, for use on the development, implementation and realization of the submitted project.
For the 2022 edition, the Ro Plastic Prize is divided into three categories that are focused on re-waste, no longer exclusively concentrated in Plastic:
- Urban and Public Design
- Educational Social Media
- Innovative and Tech Projects
Like every year, Ro Plastic Prize — which in its four years of activity has seen more than 1800 participants, with an average age of 35 years old, from 60 different countries touching all five continents — is open to absolutely everyone, without any age limit. Applicants are invited to propose solutions to one or more of the categories. Applying with projects already existing and/or submitted to other competitions is also possible.
A technical jury will select the finalists who will be the protagonists with its projects of an exhibition curated by Rossana Orlandi on the occasion of the Milan Design Week 2022, from 3rd to 10th of April 2022.
An international jury headed by Nicoletta Orlandi Brugnoni will select the winners, one per category, at a Prize Ceremony on the 7th of April 2022 (date to be confirmed).
