The international competition Design Talent 2013 reached its final phase. Students have the last few days. The opportunity to participate in the contest lasts till 15th of December. You can send your work electronically on www.talentdesignu.cz/en. The absolute winner will be awarded with a cash prize of 50 000 CZK.

Participation is free of charge and students can participate with their designs on any topic that were created on campus after 1.1.2010. The participants will be divided into five categories according to the type of design. The winner of each of the categories will receive a cash reward of 10 000 CZK.

The category for all the students who are designing products made from glass, metal, wood, plastic or whatever else, is Product design. All the designers who are dedicated to designing machines, tools, vehicles and other technical gizmos belong to the category Industrial design. Fashion lovers will certainly take advantage of the opportunity to compete in the Fashion design category. All the designers working in 3D belong to the category Architecture and interior. Illustrators, graphic designers and all the designers who have something to do with webs and new media in general - this is the Graphic design category.

The goal of this competition is to support young talented designers, appreciate their work and slightly open the doors to the world of design. That it is true can be confirmed by the words of last year’s winner Denisa Lukacova. “Winning the competition has primarily extremely pleased me and helped me raise my profile, but also enabled me to gain new opportunities and especially the recognition which is the sweetest reward for your work. I must admit it happened at the right time, because this year I have successfully completed my Master’s degree at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bratislava. Winning this competition enabled me to start working on a new idea, that really needed a financial support.  I also managed to gain work experience in a design studio called Tjep in Holland.”

Although it is an international competition with the ambition to reward the best young designers from the whole world, Design Talent is a student competition. That is why the communication with participants will always be friendly and every design sent is appreciated, whether it is a qualifying work of skilled designers or first attempts of young students.

The project Design Talent 2013 is organized by  students of the Faculty of Multimedia Communications of Tomas Bata University in Zlin in cooperation with JUDr. Martin Ruzicka’s Foundation. It is the fifth annual. The best works will be chosen by a professional jury during March 2014. The winning designs will be announced at a gala evening that will be held in Zlin Congress Centre on the 2nd of May 2014. There will an exhibition of the best designs from the competition and a fashion show of the best designs from the Fashion design category. Last year there were more than 300 submitted student designs from around the world and winners received prizes worth 100 000 CZK.

All the information can be found on the official website www.talentdesignu.cz/en. News about the competition can also be followed on Facebook and Twitter.
