Information on how to enter and prizes form part of the OFFICIAL RULES, please read them carefully before entering. Below we summarise the most important steps.
The French luxury brand, Hermès, in collaboration with designboom organizes a graphic international design competition for its masculine pillar perfume line, Terre d’Hermès.
Even since its launch in 2006, Terre d’Hermès has become a classic of men’s fine fragrances. Every year, a new design in limited edition decorates both bottle and case, telling the singularity of its universe and its codes, and emphasising the graphic strength of the bottle.
- 30 万円
More than a conceptual design competition, this is a call for production.
Our ambition would be to produce a winning design.
Other selected designs can also be potentially used in the future.
The creators of selected designs will receive cash prizes:
-first prize € 3.000 euro
-second prize € 2. 000 euro
-third prize € 1.000 euro
In the event that Hermès exercises the option to use the rights for production on an exclusive basis and sine die (without time limitations), Hermès will pay a one-off fee of € 5,000 euro to the participant for the transfer of intellectual property rights of the selected designs which will be subject to a new agreement between Hermès and the participant.
