8th German Recycling Design Award
Submission deadline: 15 November 2017
The aim of the competition is to communicate the invisible value of things that are ostensibly rubbish. Items that are thrown away or have no apparent use should be reused creatively as a resource or building material. There are no restrictions concerning education status or age for those wishing to take part in the competition. Projects with a chance of winning an award are those that impress the jury with their creative qualities, practical value, innovation and potential for the future. In addition, it is also explicitly desired that aspects such as manufacturability in artisanal enterprises, by people in workshops for the disabled or youth and employment initiatives are taken into account. All rights of the submitted projects remain with the originator and participating in the competition is free of charge. The deadline for submissions is 15 November 2017. The award ceremony and the exhibition launch will take place on 28 January 2018 in the Marta Herford Museum.
