Here’s a little something for young designers out there: if you’re feeling a bit creative recently and you have the ideas coming in, you might want check out the ‘Young Designer Competition’ from Rolls-Royce.
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, the British carmaker is calling all aspiring artists aged 16 and below to create and submit their very own designs of a ‘super-luxury car.’ Parents should take note, too, as this can serve as a good outlet and productive hobby for your kids.
The company’s statement reads: “Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is a brand that encourages the pursuit of dreams, and now a new generation of aspiring designers are being encouraged to bring their automotive dreams to life through a special ‘Young Designer Competition’. The competition enables designers of the future to let their imaginations and creativity run free, even while they remain bound to their homes.”
This competition is an extension of the event Rolls-Royce hosts each year for its employees at its Family Day Celebration in Goodwood, England. The entries here will be judged by the company’s design team, and the winner will have his design transformed into an actual rendered illustration. If you want an idea of what that looks like, refer to the image above.
Also, once things return to normal and classes resume, the winner will be driven back to school in a Rolls-Royce Phantom—and he or she can bring a friend, too. Runners up will then receive a hand-signed certificate from Rolls-Royce Motor Cars CEO Torsten Müller-Ötvös.
In addition to these, the carmaker will also be giving out two more prizes to another lucky participant: the same back-to-school Rolls-Royce ride we just mentioned, as well as a new Greenpower electric car kit which will be donated to the participant’s school.
Interested? Contestants can submit their entries through this link. In case you have any of your own, feel free to share your creations with us.
