Future-oriented ideas for children’s rooms sought – Kids Design Award is going into the 5th round

There is hardly an industry as innovational as the world of baby and children’s outfitting. Which is why Kind + Jugend is the ideal forum for design students and young designers, allowing them to present their pioneering ideas to a broad public and to interested manufacturers. Designs for the next round of the design competition can be submitted until 1 June 2018. The best idea will be honoured with the Kids Design Award.

 A Swivel chair with mini-playground or a Extremely versatile children’s furniture system – such innovations for children and baby products have been honoured with the Kids Design Award in past years. The renowned competition for creative designers is now going into the next round, and outstanding concepts and designs for future-oriented children’s outfitting and furniture are once again being sought.

Already for the fifth time now, Kind + Jugend and Association of German Industrial Designers (VDID) invite students and young designers from around the world to submit their product concepts. The ten most convincing ideas will be nominated for the award, and the designers can present their prototypes to an international public at the trade fair from 20 to 23 September 2018. A high quality international expert jury from the fields of design, industry and education will select the winner of the Kids Design Award 2018 from the group of nominees. He or she can hope to win a sponsorship award in the form of a product sponsorship: a manufacturer professionally accompanies the further development of the design to market maturity.

Attractive for young designers and manufacturers

However, it is not only the chance to win the Kids Design Award that makes the competition so attractive for young designers. This is because the other participants also profit from a great deal of attention to their ideas. The ten nominees can exhibit their designs at no charge in an exclusive special area of the leading international trade fair for high quality baby and toddler outfitting, and thus also have the chance to realise and market their idea together with a manufacturer. The submissions of the competition participants that haven’t been nominated will also be presented to potential product sponsors following the trade fair, in the exclusive Matchmaking365 community for exhibitors, trade visitors and interested parties.

This all shows that one profits from even participating in the Kids Design Award. This is because every idea receives the chance to connect with interested parties from the industry, and every young designer can establish contacts important for his or her future. Conversely, manufacturers and dealers also profit. This is because nowhere will they find so many brilliant, promising ideas for children and baby products. All you have to do is register at the free Matchmaking365 Community.

The submission deadline for participation in this year’s Kids Design Award is 1 June 2018. We are looking forward to receiving many great designs!
