Launched last month, Dezeen and Samsung teamed up to launch a global design contest that tasks entrants with coming up with innovative ways to repurpose old devices or materials and transform them into new products or services.

The contest, which is free to enter for anyone over the age of 18 in any country around the world, closes for entries on Wednesday 19 July 2023.

It has a top prize of £10,000 and total prize money of £18,000. Full details of how to enter the competition are included in the competition brief and rules.

The finalists will be determined by an expert judging panel comprising Dezeen editors and design professionals.
