Already the 12th year of the international Best in Design competition offers young talents a unique opportunity to shine in the world of design. Those who are interested may compete in the following categories: Product & Industrial Design, Fashion Design, and Communication Design. The awards are given both in the individual categories and within the entire competition - the artist who will be chosen by the jury as the most interesting will win the Absolute Winner of Best in Design 2021 title.
Whether an individual or a team enters the competition, they all have the opportunity to win a prize ranging from 200€ to1,500€ and also other prizes from our partners. But the financial reward is nothing compared with the amazing opportunities that the Best in Design competition offers.
This year’s fashion designs by young talents in the Fashion Design category will be evaluated by Tereza Rosálie Kladošová, a talented designer and the absolute winner of the 13th year of Czech Grand Design in the Production Design category. In the Production Design category, the judges will be Tescoma’s chief designer Ladislav Škoda and Richard Vodička, the director of Studio 519 - this studio designed products for the brands Ehoé and mmcité+. And in the Communication Design category, the work of contestants will be judged by the entrepreneur and co-founder of the award-winning Motionlab personalization video platform, Filip Koubek.
“I was most interested in the overall winner Milan Flíček from last year's competition. Not only because fashion is in my field, but mainly because of the exaggeration and humour that the collection contains. This is close to me, says Tereza Rosalie Kladošová, this year's juror in the Fashion Design category. "The work should arouse emotions, the desire to know, learn more and touch the heart," she adds.
The conditions of participation are simple - the work must not be older than two years, it must be applied to Best in Design for the first time, and the authors must not be older than 30 years. The work must be registered by February 28, 2021.
The results of the competition will be announced within the Zlin Design Week festival, which will take place from 7th to 14th May 2021.
The Best in Design competition is a great opportunity for young designers who wish to be discovered and bring their work to the next level. It is also a part of the Zlin Design Week festival, which is organized annually by students of the Faculty of Multimedia Communications of Tomas Bata University in Zlín.
