Calling all GCC & Levant designer-innovators: the submission date for the second Audi Innovation Award has been extended until 1 October. Designers in the region are invited to respond to the theme of ‘Autonomy’ for the chance to win a prize worth $25k.

With society moving towards an era of autonomy, this year's Audi Innovation Award is in search of innovative design solutions that can regulate themselves according to changes that happen in their surrounding environment, while requiring only minimal human intervention. 

The competition celebrates both physical and virtual design solutions and innovations that enhance mobility, preserve health and safety, encourage sustainability and maximize infrastructure.

The prize to the winning designer of the Audi Innovation Award will include a trophy and a trip to the Audi factory in Ingolstadt, Germany to experience the automotive design journey at their company headquarters. In addition to this, Audi Middle East will award $25,000 worth of consultancy to cover items such as IP registration, legal counselling and business development. The progressive automotive company will work closely with their partners at Dubai Design Week to provide design advice and mentoring to ensure the winning design is protected and given every opportunity for further development. 

Shortlisted candidates will be given $2,500 towards the presentation of their concept model that is to be exhibited at Dubai Design Week in 2017.

The date for submissions has been extended so you now have until 1 October 2017 to share your innovation.
