Student competition

The fifth annual 2019 Meat Design Festival in Ostrava will introduce a multi-disciplinary student work competition focusing on the quality of work presentation. Students from different schools, disciplines and age-groups will present their school projects. They will pit their strength against each other in the ability to convey the idea of their work in a limited format. We want the competition to raise awareness of the fact that not only the product design but also its presentation is crucial on the road to success. Of course, in practice, the packaging design and furniture design do not usually compete side-by-side. The trend is rather to cooperate; nonetheless, whatever is represented, the communication of the idea is one of the fundamental tasks of the designer, and due attention should be paid to this skill.

That’s why we announce the Meat Design Academy Award for the best-presented design product. The aim is to encourage students to be interested in this skill and to create a platform for communication among young talents and companies, and for establishing new collaborations and products.

The panel will be chaired by a prominent personality of Czech design and consist of a representative organizer of Meat Design as well as representatives of partner companies.
