The Open Call, closing June 30th, will celebrate the world’s best maker and design responses to the post-industrial paradigm.

Projects will be awarded in six categories: Future Thinking, Cultural Significance, Circular Design, Adaptable and Open Design, Sustainable Production and Design for Emergency.

The category winner will receive the reward of been featured in the Distributed Design book 2020 that will address the COVID-19 crisis as a global testbed for Distributed Designs. This will be the third of a series of four books developed within the Distributed Design platform, co-founded by the Creative Europe program of the European Union allowing creatives, designers, makers and innovators to participate in the creation of a new model of production and consumption, in which “bits travel globally, while atoms stay locally”
