Volvo Trucks "Truck of the future 2050" Design Competition
Truck of the Future 2050

One important piece of advice we always give here at DesignerTechniques, is to enter as many design competitions as you can. They are one of the best ways to give yourself motivation towards improving your skills, as well as teaching you how to design within set boundaries and time limits. With this in mind, we thought it would be a good idea to bring to your attention a very exciting new design competition from Volvo Trucks UK. One with a very special prize!

To celebrate the historic landmark of the 200,000th Volvo truck to be registered in the UK since the company began trading here in 1967, Volvo Trucks is holding a very special design competition to attract the truck designers and engineers of the future of road transport.

This exciting and challenging competition, which is open to people of all ages and from all walks of life, is called Volvo Trucks: Truck of the Future 2050. Entrants to the competition must focus on creative solutions and a thoughtful approach to incorporating specifications, safety features and systems to reduce environmental impact, that may be required thirty-six years from now. The winners will go on a once-in-a-lifetime visit to meet the Volvo Trucks Design Team in Gothenburg, where they will see their entries displayed in the Design Studio.

The competition is only open to residents of UK and Ireland (including UK and
Ireland based students), and the closing date for entries is: Friday 3rd October 2014.
The designs must be for a long-haul or regional distribution truck, configured for the UK road transport industry. All entries must include sketches of the cab interior as well as the vehicle's exterior. The winners will be announced by Friday 10th October 2014 and it is planned that the winners will visit Gothenburg during December 2014.
