Ideas Competition "Kinder, Kinder!"
"Everything looks quite different from here!"
The ideas contest invites creative minds, producers, and manufacturers to a change in perspective: "Kinder, Kinder! New design ideas for a playful city" looks at the city the way children see it.
New ideas, concepts, strategies, products, and services draw on children's experiences. The dialogue between the city, the creative world, and the business world creates relevant impulses. Society can provide the stable framework in which children are free to learn, to discover, and to empower themselves.
The starting points are diverse: design that takes into account different body measurements and a different body awareness. New media and technologies that enable encounters with the ‘big world’. Creative design allows alternative interpretations of what is familiar and opens up paths that one can follow with carefree curiosity. The best ideas are awarded a prize amounting to EUR 16,000 in total and one of the winners will be selected in a public voting process.
We are looking for submissions from six thematic fields dealing with how children experience their world–outside or at home, at play, in encounters, in doing things on their own–and that are helping to shape the city as a place for children.
We are looking for new ideas, concepts, strategies, products and services for:
- Design & fashion
- Media & publishing
- Animation, film & music
- Architecture & city planning
- Multimedia & App development
