Core77 has launched the Greener Gadgets Design Competition to coincide with the upcoming Greener Gadgets Conference in New York City on February 1st. One of the unique elements of this competition is that finalists will be judged live, on stage at the end close of the competition by a panel and audience. (Well, their WORK will be judged!) Prize money is US$2500 for First Place and $1000 each for Second and Third place. All winners and notables will be published on Core77.com and Inhabitat.com.
It's often that designers talk about green and designing things in more sustainable ways, but here is a chance for professional designers, design students, and design enthusiasts to actually throw their hats into the ring and produce meaningful concepts that address these issues.
And it is my honor to announce that I will be in attendance and will give each of the winners a baleful, uncomfortably long stare, which is a prize beyond price.
