3rd Edition - Design Contest | Mobility

Verallia Portugal declares open the 3rd Edition of the Design Contest, whose theme is "Mobility". All students of Design and Higher Education of the Arts (in Portugal, Azores and Madeira), in the academic year 2015-2016 are invited to participate individually or in groups through education institutions.

This 3rd Edition was launched on September 24th, 2015, during the International Design Congress organized by the AND (National Association of Designers), in Vila Nova de Gaia. Through its presence in this Congress, Verallia Portugal has shown that intends to further develop synergy between "research and industry." In fact, this symbiosis brings new business opportunities and partnerships with universities that allow developing projects, innovation, technology and creativity. The link between university and business must be a constant where the success of both parties goes through proximity.
In this edition, students must propose projects under the theme "Mobility" aimed at responding to the needs and characteristics of daily life "busy" to various components of the family, not forgetting the productive capacity of the glass industry. Currently, due to the economic situation, people are more nomads, more difficult to stay many years at the same job, city, house, etc. The demands of day-to-day are bigger, faster pace and sometimes quick meals outside and indoors are frequent. Thus, with this new contest, the students will have to become familiar with the essence and potential of the glass material and the glassmaking process. Candidates have also to guide the projects depending on the target and take into account the economic issues related to the launch of a bottle or a glass jar to the market.
The categories in which each candidate may compete are: wines, beers, sparkling wines, spirits and liqueurs, oils, waters, juices and soft drinks - jars and bottles. The deadline of registration and submission of projects is Friday 22th April 2016 at 18.00. The team of judges will vote online between 02sd and 31th May 2016. The award ceremony will take place at the end of June 2016, at the Centro de Artes e Espetáculos (CAE) of Figueira da Foz.
