Got aspiring designers staying at home? Here’s how to keep them busy.
If there’s anything Rolls-Royce is good at, it’s looking to the future. You don’t get to be 116 years old without having quite a bit of foresight. And while much of the world is quarantined at the moment, the people from Goodwood HQ have been looking forward. This time, it’s not about a new Phantom or Cullinan—it’s about encouraging young people to let their imaginations run wild.
Rolls-Royce is currently asking for dream car design submissions from anyone up to the age of 16: both to keep them busy during these rough times and to encourage them to look ahead. Each design will be judged by the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Design team, with an overall winner being chosen by them.
And there’s a pretty nifty prize into the bargain, too. The chosen designer will receive a rendered illustration of their car, straight from the minds behind Roll-Royce. The runners-up will also receive a hand-signed certificate from Torsten Müller-Ötvös, the Chief Executive Officer of Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
The competition is an extension of the annual one that Rolls-Royce holds for its employees during Family Day, where the children get to design their own luxury vehicle. So what do young people from 16-below have in mind when they think of their dream car? Well, we’re about to find out. The deadline for submissions is on Monday, the 18th of May, 2020. Meanwhile, you can look here for the complete guidelines.
In any case, this is an opportunity to jumpstart a young car designer’s career, or simply a way to give them something to look forward to in the middle of the pandemic.
