You will find us in the extended premises soon and until everything is ready for you to get into the work again you can take a 3 week rest. In case you don´t want to take a rest and you are worry of getting stunt, enroll in our „Ideas Exchange“ contest ?
With this contest we want to inspire those who carry an idea of a product on their minds that they would like to make but struggle to get it onto the paper. Now it is the right time to start designing! At the same time we hope that competition designs will inspire those who would like to make something but cannot find what exactly.
If you decide to try your lucky star you can win FREQUENT MEMBERSHIP (20 hours of work and other benefits) in a month according to your choice till the end of 2016.
The participation in the contest involves two steps: an application and a confirmation of the participation. You can send your application by an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with subject IDEAS EXCHANGE and your competition design which should express a product that you intend to make in our workshop. The design can be done by hand or prepared in a graphic program. The important is it fits one page of A4 size and the file sent by email is not bigger than 5MB. Also don´t forget to write your name, the product name and brief description on your competition design page.
The deadline to send the competition designs is 12AM, July 14th.
The second step is a confirmation of the participation in the contest. You confirm by handing us a printout of your competition design on Saturday, July 16th before 7PM and then being present at the announcement of winners at the end of the evening.
There will be two winners. The first winner will be chosen by a professional jury headed by Hank Duke on Friday July 15th. The jury will evaluate the originality, process design and feasibility. The second winner will be chosen by voting on Saturday, July 16th at the Opening party. All confirmed competition designs will be shown in the workshop and all party-goers can vote for the most interesting one. Both winners will be announced and the prizes will be handed at the end of the Opening party evening.
We wish you a lot of inspiration!
