The 2017 Future Food Design Awards is now open for submissions. The award is the foremost international prize intended to encourage and highlight innovative and disruptive designs for sustainable future food.
More and more designers are involved in contributing to a better food system, however at international design conferences the emphasis is still too much on aesthetics. 'Agri meets Design' and 'The Dutch Institute of Food&Design' want to change this, which is why they have initiated this competition.
Issues such as managing land use, fresh water reserves, the influence of agriculture on climate and the use of scarce resources are all concerns about food security that are shared worldwide. Themes could also include contemporary domestic table customs, migration, technology and eating habits.
The deadline for submissions is July 30, 2017.
