Quench: The thirst for new design

Brisbane's Quench collective is giving emerging Queensland designers the opportunity to exhibit their work at artisan and in the USA.

The thirst for new design, supported by Arts Queensland, will award one talented designer with a place in an international design fair to be held in the USA in June 2013.

The brief
To enter, entrants are simply asked to create an interpretation of what the work 'Quench' means to them. Delivering a visual representation by way of graphic design, film, animation, or multimedia, the result can be as literal or as abstract as the entrant chooses.

Entries can be submitted through the online entry form

The prizes
Shortlisted designers will be featured in artisan's Ivory Street window in January 2013. From this group, five designers will go on to a second stage of selection, involving a short interview and a pitch as to why their work should be included in the Quench exhibition in the USA.

The successful entrant's work will  will receive fully paid flights and accommodation for the duration of the international design fair, and have their work showcased in an international exhibition.

Entries will close on 6 January 2013, with shortlisted designers notified on January 11.
