Last chance to enter Dezeen and Samsung's Re:Create Design Challenge

Dezeen and Samsung's Re:Create Design Challenge closes for entries at midnight on Wednesday 19 July. Enter before the deadline for the chance to win up to £10,000.

The competition, which is free to enter for anyone over the age of 18 in any country around the world, invites readers to repurpose old Samsung devices or materials into new products or services.

Entrants are to propose innovative ideas for reusing, recycling and upcycling old and no longer-in-use electronic devices or waste materials, transforming them into products or services that improve people's lives in meaningful ways.

Full details of how to enter the contest are included in the competition brief and rules.

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

Judges will be looking for creative ideas that improve people's lives in meaningful ways and have a positive impact on the planet.

£18,000 prize money up for grabs

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

A shortlist will be published on Dezeen in August 2023, with the finalists and winner revealed later in October 2023.

The winner will receive a top prize of £10,000, 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.
