World Design Organization (WDO)® opened a competition for design students to submit a proposal for the World Design Impact Prize trophy before 31 May 2021.The call was open to all design students (Bachelor, Masters or PhD) currently enrolled at a WDO Educational Member institution.
In July 2021, the trophy design of Ms. Subin Doo, a third year industrial design student at Carleton University (Canada) was announced as the winner of the World Design Impact Prize™ Student Trophy Competition. Incorporating sustainable materials, and a simple yet impactful aesthetic, Doo’s trophy design offers a combination of creativity and structure that showcased four poles, each representing one of four pillars of sustainability.
The trophy concept also includes a glass cone that can be customized to contain materials that compliment the winning project. As stated by Ms. Doo, “the trophy design illustrates the four pillars as the foundation and framework that interdependently hold our lives together.”
Over the coming months, Ms. Doo’s trophy design will be produced and presented to the winner of the World Design Impact Prize 2021.
