MICHIGAN DESIGN PRIZE 2021 CHALLENGE:
Design a game, an interactive craft or project, or a toy that helps create fun and meaningful engagement with friends or family during times of social distancing. Meaningful engagement can be through safe in person activities, virtual engagement, car to car, door to door, snail mail, etc.
Submission Deadline June 11, 2021.
Submissions require a physical product solution-concept (versus a service, website design, etc.)
Entrant determines the level of “finish” of the conceptual entry. A prototype is not required for submission. Two-dimensional visualization, images of prototypes, or a combination are acceptable, and encouraged.
Focus on the quality of the idea versus the sophistication of the entry.
Both functionality and beauty are critical aspects of great industrial design solutions.
All entry descriptions must be in English. For your description we recommend a clear and concise description of your designs merits, and applicability to the Michigan Design Prize challenge. The Michigan Design Council reserves the right to edit these descriptions (and images) for clarity and/or reasonable standards of good taste.
Entrants may also submit video to verbally answer the required components of the entry, and/or to help explain their concept (see Upload tab at the bottom of the entry form).
