Applications call for Role Models Design Competition 2020

It is an opportunity to be a role model for the rest of the design world by sharing your innovative approach to healthier design. As well as winning a $1,000 cash prize, the winner could generate media exposure and kick-start their career, plus earn the esteem of peers.


For the first year, Healthy Materials Lab is extending the contest to students internationally. In order to be eligible to enter Role Models Design Competition, applicants must be currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree-seeking design program.

Selection Criteria

Healthy Materials Lab will choose winners who exemplify healthy material innovation and advocacy in design. Entries can include models, prototypes, artwork or visual media. The selection will also require documentation of the design process through pictures, drawings/short videos, etc. Another important requirement is an annotated life-cycle diagram summarizing the carbon impact of the design in order to understand how the submitted design responds to the current global climate emergency.
