Daimler’s design comp receives 50,000 entries

Daimler started a design contest earlier this year called “Style your Smart.” Now it seems the idea of decorating a virtual Smart Fortwo appeals to a lot of people, with over 50,000 design ideas submitted from 100+ countries.

There could be only one winner, (pictured) and it was a submission from Tamir Shefer of Israel. For his winning entry, Shefer will get €1,500 and had his car generously described on the contest website as:

The winner of the contest meets the philosophy of the brand perfectly and encourages the observer to open his mind. You cannot miss this car due to the artistically high level. It combines the joy of life, humanity and the spirit of the city in a modern, fresh and graphically convincing way. It is urban and human friendly at the same time and shows that cars and humans do belong together.

Contest participants also won cash prizes for being active on the company’s website, and three other designs got into the prize money.
