1. What is the Samsung Young Design Award?
Samsung Young Design Award is a proactive learning program for students. Students have the chance to challenge their creative flair following competition theme. After this step, they will have the unique opportunity to receive a feedback from the jury (which is composed of very famous designers). The Jury will support the award as a learning process, by: understanding subject, finding concept and designing selecting innovative concepts based on evaluation criteria making a first selection, giving students a pro/cons comment on their project making students refine their projects for final development. Then, selected students will present to the jury the final concept and projects mock ups during the final event and the jury will announce the winners.

2. Do I need to produce a prototype?
No you don’t need to produce a prototype for this competition. This competition requires illustrations only.
3. It is possible to integrate into the concept a technology solution that doesn’t exist today?
Yes, as long as the idea is coherent with the ranked judging criteria. For example, the emerging technologies around big data have incentivized some contestants to consult DevOps engineers to place development protocols in the cloud. We encourage this provided that the end result is not entirely dependent on obscure or unproven technical solutions.

Yes. Participants are allowed to submit 2 projects maximum for this competition. If the same entrant send more than two projects he/she will be disqualified and will not be considered in any of the submitted projects.

Yes, a final event will be organized in a winner ceremony where all the selected work will be on show.
