Nippon Young Designer Award

"Design with Heart: For a Sustainable Future with People in Mind". This is the theme for this year's Nippon Paint Young Designer Award. The main goal of the competition is to become a catalyst that encourages young interior designers and architects to form concepts that infuse convenience, practicality and purpose into our homes, recreation areas and offices. If you have a vision of an ideal work space that is not only innovative but engaging, eco-sustainable and promotes work-life balance or maybe you have this idea of a wholesome environment that supports family and community connections, then start working on your presentation boards. You are allowed to submit only one (1) entry through mail or email so send in your best presentation. The judges will select and shortlist 10 entries from the Architecture Category and another 10 entries from the Interior Design Category as the Event Finalists. Gold winners in both categories will be awarded with 6 months internship at LOR CALMA & PARTNERS (for Interior Design) and CASAS + ARCHITECTS, INC. (for Architecture) + P50,000 cash + Overseas Trip for once-in-a lifetime learning programme. On the other hand, P30,000 cash + Plaque will be given to Silver winners. Other prizes include P10,000 + Plaque (Eight Finalists), P5,000 cash (Best Colour Choice and Best Green Innovation), P10,000 cash + P10,000 Paint Voucher (Best Supporting College/University), P5,000 (Gold: Best Professor/Adviser), P10,000 (Gold: Best Green Innovation) and P10,000 cash + P10,000 Paint Voucher (Gold: Best College/University).
