LG Design Competition is Complete!

LG’s “Design the Future Competition“, their 3rd annual cell phone design competition, has been closed to new entries as of Monday, April  26th, and the judges are now reviewing the 508 design submissions. First place winner in 2008, the latest SchultzeWORKS design submission is also included. Winners will be notified in one week, on Monday, May 3rd.

The objectives of the competition were stated as:

Predict what’s next. What do you think the next generation of mobile phones should work or look like for the U.S. market in the next 2 to 3 years? We are asking for your help. We’re NOT looking for a long list of specs or phone ideas that already exist. We’re looking for a cool new concept or “big idea” supported by usage scenario and user experience illustrations.

Awards of $80,000 total are unusually generous for a competition of this type, so kudos to LG and their organizers, crowdspring. The public announcement of the results will be posted at www.crowdspring.com/lg-winners

  • First place: $20,000 Cash Award + 1 Wacom Intuos4 medium tablet (ARV of $349) + Autodesk industrial design software (ARV of $500)
  • Second place: $10,000 Cash Award + Autodesk SketchBook Pro software (ARV of $100)
  • Third place: $5,000 Cash Award + Autodesk SketchBook Pro software (ARV of $100)
  • 37 Honorable Mentions: $1,000 Cash Award

    Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to your blog? My blog is in the very same area of interest as yours and my users would genuinely benefit from some of the information you present here. Please let me know if this ok with you. Thanks!

    Now why would I want to submit an original and innovative idea to a company and organization that will give me $20,000 and turn it around and make $2,000,000+? And where I would lose all intellectual rights to my idea? No thanks.
