Citroën launches its first international graphic design competition. At the heart of the competition: the Citroën DS3.

Entrants must produce the graphics for the vehicle’s dashboard and roof.

The winner will receive €5,000 and have their vehicle realised and displayed at C42, Citroën’s showroom on the Champs-Elysées.

Objective

The different aspects to be considered are:

  • The project’s international dimension
  • The quality of the delivered project

  • 3rd prize: €1,000

In addition, the finalist’s projects will be displayed at the Citroën Creative Awards prize giving evening on October 5th and the 3 winners and their schools will be the subject of press releases and internet communications.

The creation that wins the competition will be realised with any necessary modifications to meet technical or financial constraints, as stickers fixed to the roof of a DS3 displayed at C42 Champs Elysées, Paris.

The creation will also be evaluated for production as part of the DS3 range in 2011.
