The make me competition

The international make me! competition is one of the most influential and innovative events in the field of product design in Europe and a key event of the Lodz Design Festival. The key purpose of the contest is to identify new trends, brave ideas and support those young people who are ready to compete and come up with interesting ideas. The finalists of previous editions emphasize the new opportunities opened to them: presence at additional exhibitions and mentions in publications. Consequently, they get better recognition and an easier start in the design community.

More Details

The competition which has been carried out since 2008, is addressed to designers, makers, students, and graduates, especially from art and design disciplines. To all those that are impulsively triggered to design when noticing a need or problem. In make me! projects that experiment with material or seek new interpretations of existing functions are also awarded. Submitted works are evaluated in two stages by a specially-selected jury with diversified interests. Thanks to the presentation of projects at the exhibition open to the public and contacts with experts, make me! can be a springboard for further professional development
