What is the difference between Feeel Design World Prize and other competitions?

Entry fees have been set as low as possible to encourage entries from every type of design practice around the world. There are reduced rates for individuals, young specialists and students. All entrants can save assets by submitting their entries before the early entry deadline.

Our competition is practical. There is a North American company behind the Feeel Design World Prize. Feeel Design produces complex items for architectural and interior projects. It puts special emphasis on working with metals and natural materials, and the quality of the products created.

Our competition is ambitious. Feeel Design created this prize to develop new architectural products and, with the help of new artists and designers, to create objects and collections that can become interior and garden decoration for many years.

Our competition is more than just a prize. Another ambitious idea of the competition is to form a community of designers and artists, unique in spirit and views, who respect the craft and artistic traditions of working with natural materials; humane to the customer, not striving for highly fashionable interior solutions. We would also like to reward outstanding people in the interior and design industry, as many of them remain in the shadow of their own work.

Is it possible to submit a project that has been published in a magazine, on a website or in a portfolio?

Yes, but there is an exception. Projects in categories related to subject design should not be produced earlier at the expense of interested persons or companies (except for the author of the object himself), any rights to it should not be transferred, sold or alienated in any other way.

Are there any age requirements for the project?

Yes, but only for interior and architectural projects, as well as projects-implementations presented in the form of photography. Such projects should be completed no earlier than 2018.

How many projects can I submit?

We do not limit the number of submitted projects.

What files and materials are needed to submit a project to the competition?

What will happen with the submitted projects next?

The competition takes place in several stages.

  • Technical screening / moderation of projects.
  • The work of a professional jury for the selection of projects in a narrow circle (drawing up a so-called short-list).
  • Then a professional jury chooses the winning projects from a small number of selected projects.
  • If, according to the selection results, you find yourself among the winners, you will receive your prize and, in some cases, an invitation to conclude a production contract, as well as other benefits.
  • Even if you didn’t win, be optimistic, because you can submit your project again next year or send a new one.

I don’t know how to draw and do 3D yet, but I have thousands of ideas, what to do?!

Here are some options.

Perhaps you can draw or make layouts, papier-mâché, sculpt (such projects can be photographed) – any sufficiently developed and understandable project can be accepted for consideration.

You can turn to a modeling specialist or artist who will draw or model high-quality images for you based on your sketches. If you do not have these professionals, you can find them on behance.net or other creative freelance exchanges.
