There’s less than a month to go to take part in our competition to find an aspiring designer to create a new design for our 2013 Retro Bin range. So far we’ve received a staggering 534 fantastic entries from all over the world from Belgium to Brazil, China to Chile, and the Netherlands to New Zealand!
The Design Your Bin competition is open to all budding creatives throughout the globe – age, experience and location are no barriers.
Anyone with creative flair can submit a design – it could be a favourite photo, a piece of fine art, urban graffiti street art, or a detailed illustration or textile. The winning design will go into production in 2013.
There are six categories: Modern art, Street art, Photography, Illustration, Textiles and handmade and Montage. Any medium will be accepted as long as it can be uploaded and reproduced digitally. Designs need to be uploaded via www.designyourbin.com in JPG format by 10June 2012.
As well as getting to see their design produced and on sale as part of Brabantia’s range next year, the overall winner selected by Brabantia’s international design panel will also receive a bin featuring their design and 1,500 Euros worth of Brabantia products. Here’s some of the entries so far:
Visitors to the Design Your Bin site are invited to vote for their favourite design. The designer with the most votes will win Brabantia products worth 1,000 Euros.
The winners of the six individual categories as selected by Brabantia’s design panel will each receive their choice of either a London or I’ve Bin Romantic Retro Bin.
