CEVISAMA, in collaboration with the Fundació del Disseny de la Comunitat Valenciana, the Asociación de Diseñadores de la Comunitat Valenciana (ADCV), the Colegio de Diseñadores de Interior de la Comunidad Valenciana (CDICV) and the Colegio Territorial de Arquitectos de València (CTAV), calls in an open and international way to students from educational institutions where official degrees in design and architecture are taught to participate in this call in 2 phases, whose purpose will be to organize an exhibition with the finalist projects and finally select 2 winners.
In order to participate in Phase I, a portfolio of academic work should be submitted, as far as possible linked to graphic application, ceramics and innovation processes in ceramics, baths, stone, frits and glazes.
CEVISAMA will choose, with a Jury of design professionals proposed by its collaborators and industry professionals, 7 finalists who will go on to Phase II and will be awarded 1,000 euros to develop a specific proposal that will be detailed in a briefing.
The 7 proposals developed will be part of an exhibition in the CevisamaLab space at CEVISAMA 2024, which will take place at Feria Valencia from 26th February to 1st March. Two of the seven proposals will be chosen as winners, which will be awarded an additional 1,000 euros each.
CEVISAMA, together with the Fundació del Disseny de la Comunitat Valenciana, the Asociación de Diseñadores de la Comunitat Valenciana, the Colegio de Diseñadores de Interior de la Comunidad Valenciana and the Colegio Territorial de Arquitectos de València, are committed to respecting ethical standards in design and, therefore, this competition does not involve speculative work. In order to participate in this call for entries, no new complete designs must be submitted as part of the entry, instead, a portfolio of previous academic work will be required in order to qualify for Phase II.
If their portfolios of work are selected by the Jury, participants will move on to Phase II and will be awarded 1,000 euros to create, according to the briefing they will be given, original design proposals that reflect their interpretation and creativity related to the modalities and themes described in these rules.
