I Like Design Competition - Outside Competition

Deadline: February 23, 2015

This year’s student winner will receive a paid internship at Studio3877 in Washington D.C. for the summer of 2015 and as always, paid housing costs for the duration of it. They also win a trip to NeoCon in June and coverage in both print and online features with Interiors & Sources.

The submission period will run until midnight on February 23, 2015. You’ll have until then to develop and perfect your response to the challenge and requirements below. Studio3877 and I&S will then narrow down the submissions to approximately 10 finalists. All finalists and their work will be featured on I&S.com, where readers can vote for their favorite. It’s the finalist’s job to promote their page on the I&S website, via their social media platforms, blogs, and beyond, perfecting the art of self-promotion!

Each week the student with the least amount of votes will be removed from the competition until we are down to our final winner!

  • The Challenge
  • Design the 21st Century Lobby
  • Contemporary hotels are defining and redefining who their guests are at an alarming rate. Billions have been spent categorizing end users. Baby Boomers paved the way for GenX who led to GenY and now Millennials. Each group consists of specific age demographics who have specific needs and specific desires, but who are these people? Has the need to classify people and subsequently design for a larger cross section of humanity led us to design for no one in particular? Have we become so obsessed with cliché labels that our introverted, reserved, contemplative spaces are screaming at our collaborating, communicating, cooperating spaces to join them in spatial harmony? Has our technological tunnel vision led us to forget that the root of the travel experience is people? Real, live, breathing people?

    For every traveler, there is a travel / hotel / airline / auto rental website going online every second. These travelers have choices on where and how to spend their hard-earned money.

    Hotels are realizing that the big-chain mentality has passed and consumers want unique travel experiences. As a result, the large cross section of mid-tier hotels are adapting to feel more boutique and personal.

    We believe that this is just the beginning of a holistic travel experience overhaul that is bubbling to the design surface. In this design challenge, we want you to redefine the hotel lobby beyond reception, restaurant, bar and lounge. We want you to extend the hotel out into the city and bring the urban condition in. We want you to create the next great lobby concept.

    L. Ron Hubbard Illustrators of the Future Contest - Outside Award

    The L. Ron Hubbard Illustrators of the Future Contest was launched in 1988 as an expression of L. Ron Hubbard's wish that the relationship between the written word and the illustrator's art would not die. Since its inception, it has spanned the globe in its appeal to the new and amateur artist for which it was designed, bridging cultural, economic and language barriers.

    L. Ron Hubbard produced more than 250 published works of fiction in his writing career. Yet it was from the Golden Age of Science Fiction (1938-1950), in which he played such an instrumental part, that he fondly remembered that the illustrators of those stories were as important to the readers as were the writers. Thus, by its design and since its inception, the L. Ron Hubbard Illustrators of the Future Contest winners, three each quarter, illustrate a winning story from the Writers of the Future Contest. These rendered illustrations are not only entered in the Grand Prize competition, but are published in the L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future anthology with their respective companion story.

    All themes of science fiction and fantasy illustrations are welcome: every entry is judged on its own merits only. No entry fee is required and all rights in the entry remain the property of the artist.

    Please visit the L. Ron Hubbbard website for more information. No deadline date.

    L. Ron Hubbard Illustrators of the Future Contest - Outside Award

    The L. Ron Hubbard Illustrators of the Future Contest was launched in 1988 as an expression of L. Ron Hubbard's wish that the relationship between the written word and the illustrator's art would not die. Since its inception, it has spanned the globe in its appeal to the new and amateur artist for which it was designed, bridging cultural, economic and language barriers.

    L. Ron Hubbard produced more than 250 published works of fiction in his writing career. Yet it was from the Golden Age of Science Fiction (1938-1950), in which he played such an instrumental part, that he fondly remembered that the illustrators of those stories were as important to the readers as were the writers. Thus, by its design and since its inception, the L. Ron Hubbard Illustrators of the Future Contest winners, three each quarter, illustrate a winning story from the Writers of the Future Contest. These rendered illustrations are not only entered in the Grand Prize competition, but are published in the L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future anthology with their respective companion story.

    All themes of science fiction and fantasy illustrations are welcome: every entry is judged on its own merits only. No entry fee is required and all rights in the entry remain the property of the artist.

    Please visit the L. Ron Hubbbard website for more information. No deadline date.

    I Like Design Competition - Outside Competition

    Deadline: February 23, 2015

Studio3877 and I&S will then narrow down the submissions to approximately 10 finalists. All finalists and their work will be featured on I&S.com, where readers can vote for their favorite. It’s the finalist’s job to promote their page on the I&S website, via their social media platforms, blogs, and beyond, perfecting the art of self-promotion!

    Each week the student with the least amount of votes will be removed from the competition until we are down to our final winner!

  • The Challenge
  • Design the 21st Century Lobby
  • Contemporary hotels are defining and redefining who their guests are at an alarming rate. Billions have been spent categorizing end users. Baby Boomers paved the way for GenX who led to GenY and now Millennials. Each group consists of specific age demographics who have specific needs and specific desires, but who are these people? Has the need to classify people and subsequently design for a larger cross section of humanity led us to design for no one in particular? Have we become so obsessed with cliché labels that our introverted, reserved, contemplative spaces are screaming at our collaborating, communicating, cooperating spaces to join them in spatial harmony? Has our technological tunnel vision led us to forget that the root of the travel experience is people? Real, live, breathing people?

    For every traveler, there is a travel / hotel / airline / auto rental website going online every second. These travelers have choices on where and how to spend their hard-earned money.

    Hotels are realizing that the big-chain mentality has passed and consumers want unique travel experiences. As a result, the large cross section of mid-tier hotels are adapting to feel more boutique and personal.

    We believe that this is just the beginning of a holistic travel experience overhaul that is bubbling to the design surface. In this design challenge, we want you to redefine the hotel lobby beyond reception, restaurant, bar and lounge. We want you to extend the hotel out into the city and bring the urban condition in. We want you to create the next great lobby concept.

    For more information, please visit the Interiors and Sources Competition website.

    I Like Design Competition - Outside Competition

    Deadline: February 23, 2015

    This year’s student winner will receive a paid internship at Studio3877 in Washington D.C. for the summer of 2015 and as always, paid housing costs for the duration of it. They also win a trip to NeoCon in June and coverage in both print and online features with Interiors & Sources.

    The submission period will run until midnight on February 23, 2015. You’ll have until then to develop and perfect your response to the challenge and requirements below. Studio3877 and I&S will then narrow down the submissions to approximately 10 finalists. All finalists and their work will be featured on I&S.com, where readers can vote for their favorite. It’s the finalist’s job to promote their page on the I&S website, via their social media platforms, blogs, and beyond, perfecting the art of self-promotion!

    Each week the student with the least amount of votes will be removed from the competition until we are down to our final winner!

  • The Challenge
  • Design the 21st Century Lobby
  • Contemporary hotels are defining and redefining who their guests are at an alarming rate. Billions have been spent categorizing end users. Baby Boomers paved the way for GenX who led to GenY and now Millennials. Each group consists of specific age demographics who have specific needs and specific desires, but who are these people? Has the need to classify people and subsequently design for a larger cross section of humanity led us to design for no one in particular? Have we become so obsessed with cliché labels that our introverted, reserved, contemplative spaces are screaming at our collaborating, communicating, cooperating spaces to join them in spatial harmony? Has our technological tunnel vision led us to forget that the root of the travel experience is people? Real, live, breathing people?

    For every traveler, there is a travel / hotel / airline / auto rental website going online every second. These travelers have choices on where and how to spend their hard-earned money.

    Hotels are realizing that the big-chain mentality has passed and consumers want unique travel experiences. As a result, the large cross section of mid-tier hotels are adapting to feel more boutique and personal.

    We believe that this is just the beginning of a holistic travel experience overhaul that is bubbling to the design surface. In this design challenge, we want you to redefine the hotel lobby beyond reception, restaurant, bar and lounge. We want you to extend the hotel out into the city and bring the urban condition in. We want you to create the next great lobby concept.

    For more information, please visit the Interiors and Sources Competition website.
