International submissions are now being invited for the 2021 edition of the prestigious Lexus Design Award, with the aim of nurturing and rewarding the best in emerging design talent from around the world. Entries can be submitted up to 11 October 2020.
Lexus believes that design has the power to change the world, and wants to inspire creators to produce ideas that can improve people’s lives. The way in which each entry reflects the three core principles of the Lexus brand – Anticipate, Innovate and Captivate – will be considered in the judging process.
The judging panel will be announced in the autumn and will again feature distinguished members of the design community. Their task will be to select six finalists from the entries received, each of which will be given funding to develop their idea into a prototype concept. Along the way, advice and mentorship direction will be offered from respected creators from the world of international design.
The culmination of the competition will be announcement of the Grand Prix winner, who will enjoy high-profile global exposure for their work and design talent.
The Lexus Design Award is open to adult design professionals, students and enthusiasts worldwide. In past years, entries have covered a vast spectrum of concepts and design fields, including industrial design, architecture, technology and engineering, fashion and interior design.
