Prototype, the annual design competition that showcases emerging designers, returns to IDSWest in Vancouver in September. Apply by May 15th for a chance to exhibit.
Every year, the Prototype exhibit at IDSWest brings together the best new concepts by still under-the-radar designers. You can now apply to exhibit in the next edition, taking place September 22 to 26.
The application deadline for Prototype is May 15th. Those eligible to apply are both professional designers and students who will have designed either to-market and conceptual works.
As a participant of Prototype, your work will be reviewed by an independent jury of industry leaders and design experts. Past jury members have included Bertjan Pot, Nancy Bendtsen and Omer Arbel. The winner of Best Prototype will receive a complimentary exhibit space in Studio North for the following year.
