The non-profit association aed has set itself the task of promoting creative disciplines under the guiding idea of making design competence visible in Stuttgart. It was founded in 2004 as an initiative of Stuttgart engineers, architects and designers. Prof. Werner Sobek was the initiator and is now honorary chairman of the association. The aed offers young people in particular a platform for exchange and the presentation of their own work through exhibitions, lectures and guided tours.
As part of its efforts to promote young talent in the field of design, the association has launched the “neuland” competition for young designers. This year, too, it offers young designers the chance to prove themselves in one of five categories. The first place in each category will receive prize money of 2,000 euros. Our office is one of the sponsors of this competition.
All students and graduates of colleges, academies and universities who are no older than 28 at the time of the closing date are eligible to enter. The deadline for entries is 31 March 2021. For more information, visit www.aed-neuland.de.
