Only two weeks left to enter Dezeen and Samsung's Re:Create Design Challenge

There are just two weeks left to enter our Re:Create Design Challenge, which invites readers to repurpose old Samsung devices or materials into new products or services. Enter before 19 July.

The Re:Create Design Challenge is a global design contest that seeks to explore innovative ways to transform old Samsung devices or materials by reusing, recycling and upcycling old and no longer-in-use electronic devices or waste materials.

The competition asks entrants to propose creative ideas that improve people's lives in meaningful ways and have a positive impact on the planet.

Proposals to make use of old Samsung products or materials

Concepts could include old Samsung products such as smartphones, tablets or televisions, as well as materials used in Samsung product development, including plastic, glass and aluminium.

Entrants are free to imagine ideas that repurpose entire devices or those that recycle specific components or materials.

The contest is free to enter for anyone over the age of 18 of any profession and from any country in the world.

See the full competition brief and rules for how to enter ›

The competition entries will be assessed by a panel of judges made up of Dezeen editors and design professionals, who are looking for original, human-centred designs that have a positive social and environmental impact.

The best proposals selected by the judges will be revealed in August 2023. A top prize of £10,000 will be awarded to first place, while the two runner-ups will receive £4,000 each.

How to enter

Entrants must produce visualisations depicting the product or service in use, along with supporting text to describe their idea explaining how it meets the brief.

Supporting images can include alternative angles of the main image, as well as other renders, drawings, sketches or diagrams that explain the concept. A video or animation are optional.
