Enter Radical Innovation hospitality design competitions

Dezeen promotion: Radical Innovation is currently accepting entries from professionals and students to its hospitality and product design competitions.

Radical Innovation is inviting designers to submit their visionary ideas for hotel and travel-related projects and offering the opportunity to present the work to a global audience.

Previous winners of Radical Innovation's Professional Hospitality Design competition include 2020 grand prize recipient Luxury Frontiers (top) and first runner up, the Modern Monastery by Indidesign (above)

The platform aims to assist in turning these ideas into reality, help with industry introductions and connect students with scholarship opportunities.

"Radical Innovation has a legacy of challenging the hospitality industry to think differently," said the competition organisers.

"For the last 15 years, the Hardy Group and a group of visionary sponsors have supported this platform allowing for development and design visionaries to come together around disruptive and radical hospitality ideas."
