Only one day left in CDN-Opel/Vauxhall competition

Thu, 09 Dec 2010 00:00:00 -0800

There's just one day left to enter the Car Design News-Opel/Vauxhall interactive design competition. Last minute entries have been flooding in and it's great to see all the entrants working so hard.

Entries close at 11am UK time / 12pm Central European time on Friday, 10 November. At that time, whatever you wish to stand as your final entry should be uploaded and submitted to the site. Remember, that you can archive your previous work if you think this will be useful in effectively displaying what is your final design.

While there's just one day left, remember that you're trying to show a process and story in your design – think: is there a clear narrative that someone reading this can understand? Will an outside observer and the judges be able to see how you started, how you explored the brief, who your target customer was and then how Opel/Vauxhall's design language influenced your work?

Just a quick reminder: you're tasked with designing ‘A Lounge in Motion' and Opel/Vauxhall has asked you 'what do you think is our lounge style?'. The company talks about its design language as being ‘Sculptural Artistry meets German Precision', so carefully consider whether your entry fits within the context of this brief.

The judging panel will meet next week in Russelsheim to pick the top three entries, which will then be selected to go on and digitally model their work – in association with one of the competition's other sponsors, Dassault Systemes – next year. The winner of the entire competition will be announced at the 2011 Geneva motor show and receive the ultimate prize: a paid internship at Opel/Vauxhall's design studio in Russelsheim, Germany.

Remember, judges are looking for an interior. The exterior phase of the competition starts in the new year. Good luck, and watch this space for updates.
