Michelin Challenge Design will celebrate its 20th global Design Competition by linking its past to the future of sustainable mobility with its 2020 theme “Upcycle”.
The Michelin Challenge Design competition is held annually since 2002. So far, Michelin has received more than 14,000 entries from 134 countries.
Upcycle. Michelin invites you to participate by upcycling a previously honored Michelin Challenge Design entry.
Your design story should visually communicate how your second-life use will provide a greater value than the original design.
By embracing and supporting design, Michelin aims to establish a closer relationship with the design community, combining technical innovation with transportation design to create vehicles or systems that consumers want to use, buy and enjoy.
Your entry should answer these questions:
1) Who is your intended user?
2) What is the challenge that your repurposed design addresses?
3) Why did you choose your donor entry or entries?
4) How does your Upcycle design create enhanced societal, environmental, or economic value?
Michelin Challenge Design will open for pre-registrations on August 30, 2019. The entry portal for submissions will open January 1, 2020 and close on March 1, 2020.
The Michelin Challenge Design Jury will be evaluating entries based on the following:
• Relevance to the theme;
• Concept originality;
• Design value and quality;
• Developmental potential;
• Design displayability.
Three winners will be honored at a private reception during the Movin’On Summit, June 3-5, 2020, in Montreal, where their winning entries will be displayed, and design portfolios reviewed by Challenge Design jurors and top designers.
