Do you have what it takes to become one of the next Red Box Design Talents?
RED BOX is a design development program aimed at harnessing talent and creating the next generation of Philippine designers. Initiated by the Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions (CITEM), with Manila FAME, Asia’s Premier Design and Lifestyle Event as its primary platform, the program introduces young designers, who are matched with local manufacturers to create innovative products that reﬂect their unique design sensibility.
In 2014, CITEM launched the ﬁrst ever Red Box Design Talents.From hundreds of entries, 14 designers were shortlisted and mentored by the country’s most prominent design icons; and collaborated with local manufacturers to develop their respective product collection. From the 14 ﬁnalists, four talents emerged as the grand winners and exhibited in select trade shows in London, Milan, and New York City.
This year, to continue the search for the next generation of young Philippine product designers, CITEM has launched Red Box Design Talents 2016-17.
Participants must be 21-30 years old, Filipino, and have not yet received major home- or fashion-related awards. Participants can submit entries for a maximum of two (2) categories: Furniture; Home Accents; Apparel; and Fashion Accessories.
