Call for Entries: Future Food Design Awards

June 26th 2017

During the Dutch Design Week in October we will celebrate the inaugural edition of the Future Food Design Awards. This international event will showcase and award innovative designs for a sustainable food production, and your project might be the winner!

Nowadays more and more designers are involved in (re)shaping our food system and come up with intelligent, sustainable solutions to major issues, but it’s often the purely aesthetic projects that international design conferences are focusing on. That’s why Agri meets Design partnered with The Dutch Institute of Food&Design to develop a new initiative for change, the Future Food Design Awards.

For the award the organization is in quest of artists, designers and food professionals from all over the world to challenge them to investigate, reverse, or even redesign the current food system. From table tops to land use, from technology to eating habits. You name it, you design it.

Three best projects will be selected by an internationally renowned panel of judges: food designer Marije Vogelzang, journalist Nadine Botha and NNN director Koert van Mensvoort. The winner will receive a €5.000 prize and a spot at DDW 2018. That’s not all, there will also be a public award of €2.500 assigned by you, with public votes worldwide.

What are you waiting for? Submit your project or design before July 30th! Read more.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Lisa Mandemaker: Using an artificial womb could lead to more equality between sexes, but also between different family layouts. If men would be able to give birth to children, it would maybe be easier for male same-sex couples to have a child together.
