VW on the lookout for new talent


The first global Volkswagen design contest has been launched, with the manufacturer seeking talented young designers to submit concepts for an exciting car, and a scenario for a video game.

In organising the design contest, Volkswagen says its aim is to find talented students. At the same time the company is interested in establishing long-term cooperation with international universities and design academies.

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 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.

Bischoff says he 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,” says Bischoff.

The three winners will subsequently be invited to do an internship in the Volkswagen design studio.

Information on the contest can be found here . The closing date for entries is 15 August 2014.
