Peugeot Design Contest 2007

11

logo_concours.gifThe 4th edition of the Peugeot Design Contest has begun! Design the car of the future and if you win you will be able to see your concept car in full-scale at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show and see your concept car in an Xbox 360 video game.

Prizes

The winner will travel to the Frankfurt Motor Show with a friend and will receive his 'La Griffe' trophy there. On top of that, the winner will get to travel to the Geneva Motor Show, receive 6,000 Euros in cash, get a scale model of his design AND receive an Xbox 360 with the game containing his game. For the other prizes, read clause 6 of the Rules.

Peugeot Recommends Blender

Like last year, Peugeot recommends downloading Blender if you don't own 3D software. Last year we saw some impressive entries. Unfortunately there were no Blender entries amongst the winners. I'm counting on you to change that this year, of course! IF a Blender user wins, we'll be there to report on the event and interview him or her.

Theme

This year's theme is 'P.L.E.A.S.E. innovate!' Six letters sum up the philosophy of this fourth invitation to the creativity:

Pleasurable (to drive)
Lively
Efficient
Accessible
Simple
Ecological

Deadline

Submission starts at october 6th and ends on december 4th, and the winner will be announced late February 2007. We'll add those dates to our Event Calendar as a reminder.

You'll find all the information you need on the Peugeot Design 2007 website.

  1. If the judges look at the rules for a winner the same way as last year then best forget about them and just make a spanky looking image.

  2. Yeah, I'll be entering this year!
    But last year's winner was a complete letdown - looked EXACTLY like some vacuum cleaners -, there were far better and more original entries...

  3. I might enter for those who plan to enter
    1) They are going to create the car and they probably don’t want too much of an ex pence and may have a short time to create it
    2) Look at much of there cars and try to get a feel of their models in yours at the same time make most of it your idea
    3) as the said lively so try to mood like that in your car it don’t seem like they are going for sum supper fast car more stylish and comfortable it seems and again don’t make a Nissan or Ferrari looking car the last thing I thing they want is to change their image too much

    Maybe you should try to find out how long they will have to create it and find/view some of the other cars they displayed over the years to get a feel of their spending

    although last year winner don’t seem all that flashy and I saw much better cars to my liking that were submitted I thing that why he won its east to build cheap has a mood thing going and was totally different from most car I know
    And kept a touch of the Peugeot style like the light for example

    Anyway since ive never entered and I don’t work for the company take these at your own risk u should be able to know if they make sense or not all this is saying if you plan to win you will have to use your head if your like me though just doing it for fun trying to be creative then u don’t have to worry about a thing

  4. No matter how fantastic your car design is, it will still need to conform to standard safety regulation. Which pretty much makes it look like every other cars on the road. Boring dull and unimaginative. Not to mention the shape has to be simple enough for mass production purposes.
