make me! is not only a competition, but also one of the foundations and showcase for the entire Festival. The organizers also aim at reaching young designers abroad and at turning make me! into an international event.

The goal of the contest is to give the young creators a chance to present, often for the first time, their ideas and allow them to get professional feedback and criticism. The last two editions have shown the massive need for such initiatives. The number of submitted projects grows larger with every year.

The third edition of the make me! contest has aroused an enormous interest. From 243 submitted entries the jury has chosen 19 projects, which will be exhibited during this year’s festival.

The distinguished designers are:

Anna Dul – Hand Vase (Poland)
Emmanuel Gardin – Recto Verso (Belgium)
