New Student Division announced for Creative Vibe competition.
August 10th, 2009
Gregory Commercial Furniture (GCF) has announced the opening of the Student Division for future Creative Vibe Design Competitions.
Launched by GCF in 2006, the Creative Vibe Competition aims to support local design and innovation, inviting entrants to respond to a different brief each year, focussing on aspects of commercial furniture design. The new Student Division, to run in 2010, will see student entries accepted alongside professional, aspiring and amateur designers.
The Student Division will be open to current students residing in the Sydney area of NSW. The winner will receive a complete package of support, advice and assistance including a mentoring program with GCF’s R&D Manager to prototype their design – creating concept drawings, sourcing materials, prototyping, analysis, modifications and 2nd-round prototyping.
The winner will also receive $1000 prize money, their prototype to keep and, if the design is included in the GCF Creative Vibe portfolio, the student will also receive royalties (terms and conditions apply).
“We truly believe that the future growth of our industry can come from within and by supporting local design GCF is helping to make a difference,” says Maree Draper – creator of Creative Vibe.
Opening dates for the 2010 Student Division of the Creative Vibe Competition will be announced soon.
