Show us how you rock it! YouFab Global Creative Awards 2017

Calling for new creatives that transcend the divide between digital and physical realms! 

We are happy to announce that the entries for YouFab Global Creative Awards have opened!  

YouFab Global Creative Awards (YouFab) recognize and celebrate creative works and inventions that stem from a powerful collaboration between digital and physical fabrication. This is based on the updated concept of Fab; “Fab = creativity that transcends and combines the digital and physical realms” .

Submissions should be creative experiments, works and inventions that stem from powerful collaborations between digital and physical fabrications. These submissions can encompass physical products, art, architecture, or intangible projects such as performing arts, events, workshops and experiments. Submissions can be something that has already been launched, or something yet to be unveiled.

The theme of this year’s YouFab 2017 is “ROCK IT!” We would like to see entries that challenge the idea of sensible, defying sound judgement and “hack” common sense! 

 

Featuring the special HAPTIC DESIGN Award

The special prize, HAPTIC DESIGN Award calls for touch-based designs of works or projects. Haptic refers to our sense of touch, which is one of our five senses, and these designs focus on tactile designs that allow us to connect with the world around us with our whole body through touch.
