Design Contest: PeugeotMon, 30 Aug 2004 00:00:00 -0700
"We want to know what amateur designers dream about in cars. We expect innovative, even unusual, proposals, but ones that remain consistent with our brand's values, which are good value, dynamism, aesthetics and innovation" says Philippe Houy, Head of the Concept Car Project at the Peugeot Products department.
Designers from all over the world have until December 8, 2004 to bring their concept cars to life for a chance to win the Peugeot trophy and see their dreams become reality at the 2005 Frankfurt Motor Show. The Peugeot Design Contest is unique in that the winning design is realised as a full scale model to be shown at a major auto show.
The 3rd Peugeot Design Contest is an international competition that is open to anyone aged 14 years or over: amateur designers, design schools students, and professional designers apart from the automotive industry. In the previous contests, 56 percent of those who entered the contest were aged between 20 and 30, with an average age of participants of 28.
Participants will be expected to submit one or more drawings, to which they will attach explanatory notes, which must be in French, English or Spanish.
