|Antalis UK calls for the ‘Best of British’ as global design competition gains headway
With its inaugural global design competition having already received masses of entries from countries around the world, Antalis’ UK arm is reminding the UK’s talented design and print community to get their entries in ahead of the imminent closing date.
Launched on 1st September (2017), the Antalis Interior Design Awards have been designed to reward and recognise those who continue to push the boundaries of self-expression and ingenuity when it comes to modern visual communications media. Simple to enter, participants are invited to submit their best designs using at least one product from the Antalis flagship Coala range in order to qualify for three categories; completed projects open to professionals including printers, interior designers, creatives and architects, a 3D blank canvas project open to professionals and students, and finally the public’s favourite award.
All entrants will subsequently be judged by an expert panel of major international players from the world of design*, presided by renowned scenographer François Confino, in order to compete for the top prizes of €3,500 and €2,000, along with worldwide exposure via Wallpaper and Intramuros magazines.
Already, just over a month in, Antalis has received numerous exceptional entries from around the world – including Germany, Denmark, Belgium, Bolivia, Bulgaria and the UK – but is keen to remind those who haven’t already submitted work to get involved.
Katie Farr, head of marketing for Visual Communications at Antalis UK, comments: “Since launching the competition last month, we’ve received some truly exceptional entries from across the globe, including a number from the UK. We’d like to encourage any printers or creatives who haven’t already got involved to enter, it’s a great opportunity for exposure on a world stage.
“We really do have some of the most talented printers and designers here in the UK, so it is great to have an opportunity to give them the credit they deserve.”
The winners of the 3D blank model element of the competition will benefit from media exposure in press partners, Wallpaper and Intramuros magazine and receive €3,500 and €2,000 for first and second prize respectively. Furthermore, they will have the opportunity to bring their ideas to life by re-designing parts of Antalis’ headquarters or one of the Group’s subsidiaries.
Taking part in the Antalis Interior Design Award competition couldn’t be easier – entrants just need to submit their entries online at
before December 31st, 2017.
All realisations will appear in the Gallery, offering increased visibility to participants until the contest closes.
