Mobilephones.com launches its first Young Mobile Phone Designer of the Year Award.

Targeted at university students enrolled on a design-related course within the UK, the Award aims to promote the creative talents of our future designers.

The challenge for entrants is to design a mobile phone for the future, answering the question:

What will mobile phones look like in 5 years’ time?

The winner of the Young Mobile Phone Designer of the Year Award will receive a £1000 cash prize, as well as a £1000 cash prize for their university. Two runners up will also receive a cash prize of £500.

Students from over 50 universities have been invited to submit their ideas, with a number of universities incorporating the brief into its academic course for the year 2013/2014.

Founder of Mobilephones.com, David Abrahamovitch, states: “This really is a once in a lifetime opportunity to give product design students the chance to build a platform for a future career in the industry”.

All entries must be received by midnight 31st May 2014, after which 3 finalists will be invited to an official awards ceremony to be held in London in June where the winner will be announced.

This ceremony will also provide all participating universities with the opportunity to showcase their students’ work, giving both students and universities a platform from which to demonstrate their creative talents.
