Staying in the theme and working with ideas that show your sketching skills in the best way. Please do specify the name of your concept during submission.

Presentation is essential. The sketch(es) should speak for itself/themselves – keeping the use of pointers and texts in the sketch (presentation) as low as possible.

Make sure to include a detailed description of your concept (idea) – this will be used to cross check if everything that has been mentioned in the description is evident in the sketch or not & if the sketch(es) effectively communicate(s) the concept/idea or not.

Working with complex forms, exploded sketch presentations et cetera is a good way to show your skills.

The idea has to be yours. It has to be original – an original product concept and using the concept to show your sketching and communication skills.
