Volkswagen Design Contest: Young Design Talents Wanted

Ever wanted to design a Volkswagen?  Here’s your shot.

Volkswagen is running the first worldwide Volkswagen Design Contest from May 5th until August 15th, with the winner to be selected by the Head of Volkswagen Design, Klaus Bischoff.  Participants are tasked with creating an “exciting car for a video game”, and winners will be rewarded with a six month internship in the Volkswagen Design studio.

The first worldwide Volkswagen Design Contest has been underway since 5 May. Young design talents are called on to submit concepts for an exciting car for a video game including video game scenario. Information on the contest can be found at www.volkswagen-design-contest.com. The closing date for entries is 15 August 2014. A jury of experts from Volkswagen Design will judge the contributions submitted. The three winners can look forward to a six-month internship in the Volkswagen Design department in Wolfsburg.

“Create a cool video game car for Volkswagen!” is the challenge for the first worldwide Volkswagen Design Contest. Students from the fields of interior and exterior design, interface design, graphic design and/or colour and trim design can submit concepts for a car that is perfect for a video game. The typical character of a Volkswagen should at least be somewhat recognisable. Students have almost four months to visualise and submit their ideas on three charts, either in individual work or as a team. The winners of the contest will be selected by Klaus Bischoff, Head of Volkswagen Design, and the management team of his design studio, and announced on 30 September 2014. Klaus Bischoff is looking forward to receiving lots of submissions: “We are always interested in the perspective and attitude of young designers to mobility topics and this is why we decided to take a new approach to finding fresh design talents with the Design Contest.” The three winners will subsequently be invited to do an internship in the Volkswagen Design studio.

In 2011 Volkswagen successfully initiated the Volkswagen Design Contest with the theme “The first electrical Volkswagen for my country…!”. This contest was aimed solely at students from Russia, India and China. As part of the international orientation of the company the contest is now open to students from around the world. The aim of Volkswagen in organising the Design Contest is to find talented students. At the same time the company is interested in establishing long-term cooperation with international universities and design academies.
