Regulations and application details on:
PORADA INTERNATIONAL DESIGN AWARD 2019, the new edition of the international competition, is focused this year on different types of Sideboard and Cupboard, in which the use of solid wood is prevalent (although not necessarily exclusive) and which conveys the values and the identity of the Porada brand.

Promoted by Porada Arredi srl, a leading company in the production of furnishing accessories, and, under the patronage of ADI, the Association for Industrial Design, the competition is open to Italian and foreign designers and creative people (individuals or groups), professionals or non-professionals, corporate employees and students. Innovation, originality and search for new design solutions for woodworking processes: these are the guidelines of the challenge.
A jury composed of renowned experts in the field will judge and select the winning projects. In evaluating the entries, the judges will take into account: their originality, the degree of innovation and pursuit of new design solutions related to the processes typically used for solid wood, experimentation with materials and surface finishes, the capacity of projects to define and anticipate scenarios of use and innovative concepts in the use of wooden furniture and contemporary furnishings, with particular regard to typological, technological and morphological decisions.
The jury will choose three winners for each of the two categories (Students and Professionals) in the competition, who will receive their awards at a dedicated event. 
The total prize money of € 10.000 will be allocated as follows:
1st prize: € 3.000
2nd prize: € 2.000
3rd prize: € 1.000
STUDENT Category:
1st prize: € 2.000

The winning projects of the competition will also be prototyped and possibly produced by Porada at a later stage.
