Future Food Design Awards


From June 19, 2018 until August 12, 2018
The FFDA is looking for designs that challenge our conventional view of food. Concepts can range from developing a new food culture to reshuffling the food chain. Issues such as land management, the use of fresh water reserves, the influence of agriculture on climate and the use of scarce resources are issues that are shared worldwide and are all related to food security. Other themes could be contemporary domestic table customs, migration, technology and eating habits. The FFDA challenges designers to use their vision of the future of our food as a mirror for all human beings and their food consumption. Submit your entry before August 12.
About the FFDA
The goal of the Future Food Design Awards is to stimulate designers that have an important, remarkable and innovative perspective on the food system. We want to give promising ideas the attention they deserve and push for these ideas to be developed further. Moreover, we hope to establish more of a connection between the two worlds of food and design to promote exchange and a more open attitude towards the other’s perspective.
The jury will select three nominees from among all the entries for the audience award of 2,500 EUR, and one winner to receive the jury incentive award of 5,000 EUR. The jury will reveal both the winner of the jury award and the winner of the audience award at the FFDA award show during Dutch Design Week 2018 in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.
