Electronic waste, or "e-waste," generated by computers, TVs, cameras, printers, and cell phones, is a growing global issue.
Through the Second International E-Waste Design Competition, participants are asked to explore solutions to both remediate the existing e-waste problem and prevent e-waste generation in the future.
An entry in the E-waste Prevention category must focus on decreasing the amount of e-waste generation. The entries in this category should focus on new products or services.
E-Waste Reuse category focuses on the aesthetic and technical reuse of e-waste into useful electronic and non-electronic products. An entry in the E-waste Reuse category must reuse old e-waste components in order to create a new product.
Deadline for registration is April 1, 2011.
