Category Brief

The judges are looking for the best young product designers that are passionate about Product Design or Industrial Design. You will need to show experience with AutoCAD style programs which offer a more precise building platform with a strong focus on real-world physics and restraints than other 3D software packages. The judges want to not only see how you sketch and design your ideas, but they are very interested in seeing how you visualise and present your ideas to the world.

Important Notes

  • This category is for Industrial Designers and Product Designers, not 3D artists wanting to work in film and games.
  • CAD software and the _-design process__ must be the focus for entrants.
  • This is not a category for people with nice ZBrush models of cars, products or furniture.
  • Include illustrations and other supporting material to help explain to judges your design process and problem solving abilities.
  • Judges are interested in seeing great product visualisations. So make sure to share really polished final renders and compliment these with sketches and concept art.
  • Ask questions on our Discord Channel if you need help.
  • Review Winning Entries from last year that were selected by our judges.
  • Watch this video demonstration that shows how to create a perfect entry.
