international design contest

trieste contemporanea

Set up in 1995, the Trieste Contemporanea International Design Contest is advertised under the patronage of CEI (Central European Initiative) every two years by the Trieste Contemporanea Committee and it is open to designers from the 17 CEI Member States and from Austria, the Baltic Countries, Germany, Kosovo and Turkey.

The announcement asks for a project of an object in response to the edition’s requested theme and material. Once the participation terms are up, an international jury chooses among the most interesting projects the winners and a number of selected projects¬† to be shown in a conclusive exhibition.

A catalogue reports the results of the competition.
