Volkswagen launches competition for young design talent

The first worldwide Volkswagen Design Contest has been launched, with the manufacturer seeking young design talent to submit concepts for an exciting car and scenario for a video game. The closing date for entries is August 15, 2014. A jury of experts from Volkswagen
Design will judge the contributions submitted. The three winners can look forward to a six-month internship in the Volkswagen Design department in Wolfsburg.

Create a cool video game car for Volkswagen - that's the challenge for the first worldwide Volkswagen Design Contest. Students from the fields of interior and exterior design, interface design, graphic design and/or colour and trim design can submit concepts for a car that is perfect for a video game. The typical character of a Volkswagen should at least be somewhat recognisable. Students have almost four months to visualise and submit their ideas on three charts, either in individual work or as a team.

The winners of the contest will be selected by Klaus Bischoff, Head of Volkswagen Design, and the management team of his design studio, and announced on September 30, 2014.

"We are always interested in the perspective and attitude of young designers to mobility topics and this is why we decided to take a new approach to finding fresh design talents with the Design Contest," said Bischoff. The three winners will subsequently be invited to do an internship in the Volkswagen Design studio.
