Call for entries for the Signes Award

The Signes Prize has this year reached its tenth anniversary. The Signes competition is organized by the Spanish SIGNES Foundation, an organisation aimed at promoting and developing graphic and industrial design, by supporting the entry of students and young designers. The Signes award allows final year design students the opportunity to work at renowned, prestigious design studios or study at education centres. Like last year, the winner of this tenth edition will receive a six months scholarship with all expenses paid at Interaction Design institute Ivrea. Here he will benefit from the exciting, creative and international teaching environment and will have a chance to work on a research project in interactive design. Interaction Design Institute Ivrea is now officially �a friend of the Foundation.�

To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Signes Prize the Foundaci�n Signes has organized a special event. As a tribute to the great Italian designer Ettore Sottsass, the winner of the tenth edition will take away an exclusive gold, silver or bronze version of the Shiva vase, one of Sottsass�s most renowned ceramic works.
This year�s jury consists of Gillian Crampton Smith, academic director of the Interaction Design Institute Ivrea, the art critic Daniel Giralt-Miracle, the designer Jaime Hayon, the designer Erik Spiekermann, the writer Andr�s Trapiello, the architect Oscar Tusquets Blanca and the Managing Director of DDI, X�nia Vilad�s.
