As the deadline for entries to the 2010 Interior Motives Design Awards approaches – all designs must be received by 10 July – details of the judging panel and the upcoming awards ceremony in Paris are firming up.
Judging the hundreds of student designs this year will be a panel of industry experts that includes such influential figures as Amko Leenarts, Interior Design Director, Peugeot; Robin Page, Interior Design Director, Bentley; Wolfgang Müller-Pietralla, Leader VW Future Research; Michael Robinson, Design Director, Stile Bertone; Andreas Stump, Head of Advanced Interior Design, Citroën; Romulus Rost, Chief Interior Designer, Volkswagen Advanced Design, Potsdam; and Euan Sey, Editor of Interior Motives magazine.
The competition is open to students enrolled at any accredited undergraduate or graduate design degree programme, both in automotive and non-automotive disciplines – those studying fashion design, industrial design, architecture and other similar fields are also eligible. In order to qualify all entries must have been designed during the 2009/2010 academic year and must be received by 10 July. Entries that have been shortlisted for an award will be published on the Interior Motives Awards website in August.
Presiding over the awards ceremony in Paris on Friday, 1 October – the evening of the second press day of the motor show – will be renowned British designer Peter Stevens. The finalists' work will be exhibited in the glamorous Art Deco surroundings of the Palais des Congrès d'Issy, and the winner of each of the ten categories will walk away with a trophy and $500 in prize money. The evening will also see Stevens announce the Interior Motives Student Designer of the Year – an accolade that carries with it a prize of $5,000.
