Michelin North America is celebrating its 20th global design competition, Michelin Challenge Design, in 2020 by challenging entrants to Upcycle previously recognized works.
"The world is pursuing ways to do more with less by using fewer resources and raw materials in the creation of innovative solutions for people, the planet and the economy," said Nick Mailhiot, chairman of Michelin Challenge Design.
The entries should visually communicate how their repurposed Upcycle design increases societal, environmental or economic value.
Three winners will be honored at a private reception during the Movin'On global sustainable mobility summit, June 3–5, 2020, in Montreal, where their winning entries will be displayed, and design portfolios reviewed and networking opportunities with Michelin Challenge Design jurors.
