Leading lights of the automotive design industry will be gathering on the eve of the Paris Motor Show, on the 3rd October to celebrate the up and coming talent at the sixth Interior Motives Design Awards. With hundreds of entries from design students across the globe, this is the premier competition for showcasing automotive design talent which will be held at the lively and eclectic Club Med World, Paris.
The Interior Motives Design Awards 2008 will provide a platform for promising young talent and original thinkers to put forward their ideas and innovations for the future of automotive interior styling, whilst offering industry executives a chance to glimpse the future of car design. Design has become even more central to the industry with automotive designers needing to keep one step ahead of consumers' changing lifestyles and the industry's desire to deliver a more sustainable future. This event is, therefore, perfectly placed to showcase and acknowledge distinctive designs that will appeal to the international marketplace.
The calibre of this year's entries has been extremely high. The event has brought together a panel of distinguished automotive designers and design professionals from leading industry players such as Volkswagen, Faurecia and Bentley Motors, to develop this year's shortlist. As well as individual category winners, an overall winner will be announced who will walk away with a $5,000 prize and an enviable internship at Volkswagen Group and Volkswagen's Future Design trendlab in Wolfsburg.
Andreas Wlasak, vice president of industrial design at leading automotive suppliers Faurecia, who are premier sponsors of the event, commented: "For those passionate about automotive design, the Interior Motives Design Awards offer the opportunity to view innovative and stylish work from the next generation of car designers. The ceremony is also a fantastic opportunity for young designers to showcase their work to the global automotive design community and demonstrate the creativity that will produce the cars of tomorrow."
Guests at this year's awards ceremony will be invited to view the students work in the company of their peers before the official awards ceremony takes place. This will be followed by the Interior Motives Design Awards 2008 celebration.
