The Trieste Contemporanea International Design Contest 2021 is open!

The Trieste Contemporanea Committee announces BASICS, the 14th edition of the International Design Contest Trieste Contemporanea, with the aim of showcasing the most original design offerings from the countries of Central Eastern Europe. The contest is under the auspices of the Central European Initiative.

The 2021 edition of the competition aims to reflect on individual contribution we can make to sustainable development. Basic issues of concern are how to effectively change ourselves and increase our responsibility to others and to our planet.

Contestants are asked to conceive an original and innovative item of contemporary design taking into account sustainable development objectives.
While reflecting on new meanings and purposes, which also objects and tools take when addressing sustainable goals or facing contingencies (e.g. as it occurs during an unprecedented outbreak), propose and design a basic object fit for serviceable use you consider iconic of the process of change underway.
Write a brief explanation of the reasons for your choice.

The competition is open to all designers born in CEI member states (Albania, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Moldova, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Serbia, Slovenia and Ukraine) in compliance with its purposes. The 2021 edition of the contest has been extended to designers born in Austria, Estonia, Germany, Kosovo*, Latvia, Lithuania and Turkey as well.
Any group competing should consist exclusively of members born in the countries listed above.
Any group wishing to participate should fill out the application form with the name of the group leader and list the names, countries and dates of birth of the other group members.
(* This designation is without prejudice to positions on status, and is in line with UNSCR 1244 and the ICJ Opinion on the Kosovo declaration of independence.)
