If you are an architect, a designer or simply a creative who loves self-production, Up Designer Selection (www.updesignerselection.it) could be the chance you're waiting for. Now at its second edition, Up Designer Selection is a contest created by architects Laura Calligari and Cinzia Loncao to promote independent design and productions.

The contest's new edition - organized in collaboration with Imake Associazione Culturale Designer Autoprodotti (www.imakelab.it) and MakeTank Srl (www.maketank.it), European Makers' marketplace - is centered on self-produced objects designed to be used upon a table or a desktop: kitchen accessories, tableware, vases... but also pen holders, photo frames and so on. No limits to creativity!

To take part in the contest just go to www.updesignerselection.it and visit the page Bando, where you'll find the announcement and its related attachments. You must then send a photo or a rendering of your project to info@updesignerselection.it. Deadline is February 24th, 2014. It's possibile to partecipate as a group and there are no age requirements.

The most interesting creations, selected by a panel, will take part in Up Designer Selection - "Sul tavolo", an exhibition scheduled for next March in Florence, and will be inserted in its catalogue. Also, selected projects might be involved in special initiatives, to be held during this year, and included in a special section of MakeTank marketplace (www.maketank.it).

All selected projects must be completed and available before exhibition's date. A list of winning projects will be published on contest's website before March, 5th 2014.
