Contests & Events

Design is the engine of growth, cultural orientation, evolution of taste, transformation of lifestyles and consumption. We take care of this at POLI.design, and on these issues, we can develop competitions and cultural events together.

Promoting design culture is one of the aims of POLI.design. Organizing competitions, seminars and conferences, exhibitions, events; providing consultancy services for cultural and communication initiatives; supporting editorial activities.

The partnership with POLI.design is agreed based on the objectives of the initiative that companies, public or private entities want to pursue and makes use of our experience in the field of cultural promotion of design themes.
POLI.design can take care of the design, organization and coordination of these initiatives with different degrees of involvement depending on the project needs and internal capabilities of the promoter.

What does POLI.design do?

For Competitions POLI.design supports the secretarial activities, the communication, promotion and dissemination actions, from the drafting of the announcement to the receipt of the works up to the organization of the jury.

Competition Regulations are drawn up in accordance with the guidelines defined by professional associations.

POLI.design has its own platform for the management of competitions and can count on its national and international professional and university networks for the dissemination of proposals.

Competition modalities

Competitions can be organized, according to the objectives of the promoter, in two main ways:

  • Invited competition – Participants are individually selected and invited to participate in the competition.
  • Competition of ideas – Through a call for proposals, the initiative is transmitted nationally and internationally. Participation can be open or with defined categories.

Events and exhibitions

POLI.design can support the creation of events and exhibitions in the field of design, dealing with the definition of the cultural project and curatorship, the organization and coordination of specific activities, the definition and implementation of the promotional campaign, and the follow-up of implementation and realization of the initiative.
