Turin, the centre of the universe for automotive designers. How would you, budding designer, like to be there, be a part of the next big thing in car design?
The Istituto Europeo di Design (IED) of Turin, Italy’s premier design school, is offering Autocar India readers two scholarships — the three-year post-diploma course and the Master of Arts in Transportation Design (see box) — worth a total of Euro 42,400.
We’re sure everyone wants to go but as there are a limited number of seats, we’re running a competition to separate the Bangle from the bungle.
All you have to do to take part is send in your ‘Best Urban Car for India’, taking inspiration from an existing automotive brand of your choice. The entries will be assessed by a panel of judges from IED and the winners will be notified by e-mail.
This is the opportunity of a lifetime. Ladies and gentlemen, start your pencils.
How to take part in the contest:
- Create a freehand drawing (15x20 cm at 300 dpi) of your Best Urban Car for India, using a technique of your choice.
- For the three-year post-diploma course, design your project by developing one perspective of your choosing.
- For the Master of Arts in Transportation Design course, send us four perspectives — one side-perspective sketch, one front three-quarter sketch, a rear three-quarter sketch and one-side perspective from above.
- Send in your project to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject
‘IED Scholarships’. The deadline is August 5, 2010.
- Also send us your curriculum vitae, a personal portfolio of projects and the completed application form, signed where required.
|ISTITUTO EUROPEO di DESIGN
|This 40-Year-old institute is internationally recognised for its excellence for all subjects connected with transportation design. IED is also the only school in the world which, for the past five years, has had a full scale model on display at the Geneva Motor Show, the result of the work of students of the Master Course in Transportation Design. That the institute is situated close to Italy’s famous automotive manufacturers ensures that it is the current experts in the field who contribute directly to student training by providing theory lessons, workshops, practical exercises and project commissions.
