Ro Plastic Prize Competition Details
RoGUILTLESSPLASTIC, the international project founded and curated by Rossana Orlandi and Nicoletta Orlandi Brugnoni, wants to engage the Designer and Creatives Communities to give new life to Plastic Waste and all others kind of Waste, by exploring their endless possibilities of transformation.

Applicants are invited to propose solutions to one or more of the categories and they can apply with projects already existing and/or submitted to other competitions.
the Ro Plastic Prize identifies three new categories representing common high priority nodus on Plastic Waste and all-kind of Waste, asking important involvement on technological and innovative solutions.
One of the most important categories in the various editions of the Award, it is being presented once again this year with the intention of receiving projects that increasingly meet the objectives of the competition.
This category aims to create an innovative and unexplored virtuous circle to reward our local communities with recycling projects from Plastic Waste collected from cities and public spaces.
Designers must propose projects that are a synergy of durability, ergonomics, accessibility, safety, while creating beauty and added value for urban and public spaces.
The millions of young people who make up Generations Z and Alpha live in a constantly interconnected world thanks to their greatest ally, Social Media. The adults of tomorrow are an immense and multi-faceted community who socialize with a single universal language, comprehensible to everyone everywhere.
Creatives must design communication projects that can only be used through social media, that explain, engage, involve, educate and teach proactively with a universal, simple and effective language, full of good vibes.
