    YouFab, which is being held for the 7th consecutive year this year, recognizes and celebrates creative works and inventions that stem from a powerful collaboration between digital and physical fabrication. Last year, they received 227 entries from 26 countries and the winners spotlighted in arts, design and tech fields.

    They are calling for entrants from all over the world to show how you nail the art of fabrication. They want to challenge the idea of sensible, defying sound judgement and “hack” common sense. They are truly looking forward to seeing entries that align with this spirit and are looking to support such works.

    This year’s YouFab theme is “Polemica!! How do you rebel? And against what?

    There are two categories:

    Student (only for those who are enrolled in a university or college at the time of entry)
    General (anyone can enter, including corporations)

    Submissions should be creative experiments, works and inventions that stem from powerful collaborations between digital and physical fabrications. These submissions can encompass physical products, art, architecture, or intangible projects such as performing arts, events, workshops and experiments

    A condition of entry is that the submitted work has to be in its completed/operational form created with such machines as digital fabrication tools and not left in the conceptual phase of design plans or proposals. Submissions can be something that has already been launched, or something yet to be unveiled.

    For the YouFab 2018 Lion Award, together with the Lion Corporation, which has been backing “life” and providing several products and services to support healthy everyday lives, we are looking for creative works with the theme, “A future where ‘work’ and ‘life’ merge together”. What interesting solutions exist for the future lifestyle of 2030? The Lion Award application can easily be submitted together with the YouFab application.

    • Julia Cassim (Professor at KYOTO Design Lab Kyoto Institute of Technology)
    • Satoshi Yoshiizumi (TAKT PROJECT Inc., Representative, Designer/Creative Director)
