Four weeks left to enter Dezeen and LG Display's €88,000 OLEDs Go! competition
There are just four weeks left to enter Dezeen and LG Display's OLEDs Go! competition, which seeks creative OLED designs to enrich people's changing lifestyles.
The contest, which is free to enter for anyone over the age of 18 in any country around the world, closes for entries on Monday 20 December 2021.
It features a top prize of €35,000 and total prize money of €88,000.
Full details of how to enter the competition are included in the competition brief and rules.
Contest seeks designs to enhance people's changing lifestyles
This is the second edition of the OLEDs Go! competition.
This edition of the contest seeks designs that incorporate small to medium OLED displays (between 27 and 55 inches diagonally) that provide new experiences and enhance people's changing lives.
Entrants are free to design any product for any user or demographic around the world and can aim to improve a lifestyle that is emerging or changing for any reason.
Designs must be feasible to manufacture using current OLED technology.
Rather than radical, futuristic concepts, we are looking for practical designs that could be developed and produced over the next few years.
€88,000 prize money up for grabs
Competition entries will be judged by a jury comprising Dezeen editors and LG Display executives and designers, who will select the finalists and determine the overall winner.
A shortlist will be published on Dezeen in March 2022, with the finalists revealed in April 2022 and the winner announced in June 2022.
The winner will receive a top prize of €35,000, the runner up will receive €20,000, third place will win €15,000, fourth place will win €10,000 and fifth place will win €8,000.
Contest builds on success of last year's OLEDs Go! competition
This is the second time that Dezeen has teamed up with LG Display to run the OLEDs Go! competition.
The inaugural contest was a huge success, receiving over 200 entries from 50 different countries around the world.
It was won by Richard Bone and Jisu Yun, who designed a transparent OLED television called Scroll that doubles as a shelf.
Entrants to last year's competition are free to enter this year's contest as well, including winners, finalists and those that made the shortlist.
However, any design that was shortlisted last year cannot be resubmitted or adapted for this year's edition of the competition. Designs that are too similar to any of the shortlisted entries from last year will also be discounted.
